 Topic: Colonial Geography - Find your way around the 13 Colonies!

 

 Today's Goal:  This week students will be introduced to the 13 English colonies that eventually become the

 United States of America.  Before learning about why each colony was founded and what it was like to live in

 graphic organizers.  They take abstract concepts and place them into an easily interpreted image.  Complete

 the assignment below to learn more about Colonial Geography! 

 

 Today's Assignments:

 

1.  Today you should complete parts 1, 2, and 3 of the 13 Colonies Geography assignment below in your
