Exploration, vast wilderness, religious freedom, and a chance for a new life ~ 13 colonies established along the eastern seaboard. This was the New World in the late 1600s to early 1700s.
Why do we set these colonies apart to study when the Americas were regularly being explored? Because these 13 colonies came together to form a new nation, The United States of America.
There is so much material that you’ll review when studying the settlement of the New World, so we’ve created something to help guide your learning, and also keeps all of your information together in one place.
In it you will find:
- A page for each colony for you to record facts, like the date it was founded, important people of the colony, and the geographic region.
- Questions to spark deeper discussions about what was happening during this time period.
- Three activities to make your learning interactive; including a craft, a game and a recipe.
- Creative colonial drawing prompts.
- A resource page full of books, websites and videos that you can use to aid your study.
Exploring The 13 Colonies Through Notebooking and Unit Study is a FREE download that will hopefully make your family’s life a bit easier as you learn about this period in history.
