For this project, students either pick or are assigned one of the original 13 British colonies. Then, they fill out a notes sheet to get crucial information about their colony. Students then use their information to create a "lotus" diagram (looks like a tic-tac-toe board) and a "geopoem" about their colony. (similar to a "biopoem")
Included in this product:
* a student information sheet with the information and rubrics for self-assessment
* a blank lotus diagram
* a notes sheet for students
* a grading sheet with a rubric for S. Studies and ELA for you to grade each student
My students really loved doing this research project and were very creative with their products. Students really become an expert on their colony are are excited to share with the rest of the class. These also made a great bulletin board to show information for each colony!
