Colonial Regions Brochure: Mapping the Colonies
Directions: For this activity, students will create a brochure that outlines the different geographic, economic and social life characteristics of the three colonial regions. Students will need to think of themselves as real estate agents, advertising the English colonies to people back in Europe.
Directions Part II - Mapping the Colonies: The cover of your brochure is the first thing your potential buyers are going to see, so it's important that it "pops", but it also needs to be informative. Create a cover for your brochure that meets the following requirements.
- Write your name and period in the bottom left corner of your cover.
- Add a title or a slogan to your brochure cover (get creative) at the top of your brochure.
- Label each of the 13 English colonies and the Atlantic Ocean.
- Color the Southern, Middle and New England Colonial Regions, and include a key.
