White Activity:

  Between 1607 and 1703 England established 13 colonies in North American that would later become the United States of America.  Each of these colonies were unique in the way
  they were established.  Life was also very different for the people who lived in each of the 13 colonies.  In this assignment, we will be learning about how each of these colonies
  differed and having a lot of fun in the processes.  Follow the teachers directions in order to complete the chart.  Be sure to place your summaries in your LiveBinder textbox.
