US History - Colonial Society Unit
In this unit, we explore how early European colonies established themselves in North America and how each evolved over time. We begin with the Spanish in Florida and the American SW. Then the Dutch in New York as well as the French in the Canadian frontier becomes the focus. Finally, we finish up with the unique settlements of the English in both the Chesapeake region and the Puritan NE.
Activities include digital timelines, creative writing, digital mind maps, persuasive writing, and as always a great dose of primary source work. There's a lot in here that will give your classes a good shot in the arm!
