American Colonies

Ladies and Gentlemen, 
In the last couple of days, you've spent some time beginning to learn about the American Colonies. Today, you'll continue that work. Please use the resources below to increase your knowledge, and then write a post on your blog. 

You may title the post as you like, but make sure to add the following labels: Social Studies, Colonies

In your post, make sure to consider the following questions:

  1. Why were Europeans interested in coming to the "New World?"
  2. How would you compare and/or contrast the different colonial regions (New England, Middle, and Southern)? Think about each region's goods and services, their religious beliefs, and how they each interacted with the native people.  

Here are some resources for you to use:

  1. Google Maps
  2. Mr. Nussbaum
  3. Simple English Wikipedia
  4. LiveBinder
  5. BrainPop
Thanks in advance for pushing your thinking. Once your writing is finished, consider adding some images, a slideshow, or some other interactive piece to your blog post! We can't wait to see your work!

~ Mr. Moore and Ms. Chavez
