This is a fun way to see if your kids understand some of the differences between each colony and each region.
First, students complete a 13 Colonies web activity. They are given a website to search for information about each of the colonies (climate, natural resources, major cities, etc.). An answer key is provided.
Next, students view a PowerPoint that discusses the differences between the New England, Middle, and Southern Colonies. Each student completes a note-taking guide.
They are then introduced to the postcard assignment. There are instructions on the postcard template itself. I also show the State Postcards PowerPoint to give them an idea about how to design their own.
Thanks for stopping by! I would love to hear from you when you have a moment.
