US History - Colonial Society - Lesson 3
In this lesson, we switch over to English colonization in America specifically in Virginia and Massachusetts. We take a look at the tobacco economy and indentured servants, the labor force of the colonies. We then focus on the motivations and lifestyle of the Puritans. Students engage in debates, create graphic organizers, work with primary sources, and even do a little historical fiction writing! Plus, being able to show a scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail is a win for everyone!
