    Students will use readings, primary sources, and images to examine the New England, Middle, and Southern Colonies. The activity divides information into sections to allow chunked reading. Following each "chunk", students will answer guided questions in order to check for understanding. Questions in each reading vary in their level from recall, explanation, analysis, and making connections. Following the readings is an extension activity that could be optional for the students.

    New England Colonies Include:
    *Who Are the Puritans?

    *Governing the Colony

    *Religion and the People

    *Thomas Hooker Founds Connecticut

    An answer key is included with each Regional Product! This is a perfect "PRINT AND GO" activity or you can do whole class readings and allow students to have time to answer questions individually or with their group. It is easy to follow, so it can be used with a substitute or for homework.
