Enduring Understanding: Students will analyze European colonization and settlement of North America.
Background For Teachers:
Student Prior Knowledge:
Step 1 Divide class into small groups.
Step 2 Assign each group one of the original 13 colonies to research. Sample questions are provided in an attached worksheet.
Step 3 Students research their assigned colony. Each group will record their findings on a poster board to use during a class presentation. (This research may be done during class time or independently depending on time available or student interest and/or ability.)
Colony presentations. Students take notes on presentations. A sample graphic organizer is attached.
Step 1 Hand out graphic organizer for regional differences. see attachment
Step 2 Direct a class discussion linking individual colonies into regional groupings. Students need to fill in the chart, naming the colonies in each region as well as regional similarities in each of the four categories. This discussion should be teacher directed with students providing the information from their notes.
Strategies For Diverse Learners:
For gifted students: Students write an essay comparing and contrasting the development of the colonial regions using the earlier criteria from the research assignment sheet.
