This is a lesson for a 13 Colonies Unit. The lesson is divided into 3 parts - New England, Middle, and Southern Colonies. For each of the colonial regions, there are 4 parts:
1. Students will read through a section on a colonial region. A possible extension to this is to use colored pencils or highlighters to highlight the PEGS (Political, Economic, Geographic, and Social) in the readings. Use 4 different colors, one for each of the PEGS. 2. Students will then answer a question related to the reading. 3. Students will then use the reading to fill in a PEGS chart about that region. 4. Students will then label the map with letters and then fill in the map key with the appropriate colony.
