Hopefully you all finished the small map yesterday.
You will be making a BIG map of the colonies. To post on the Inspiration Wall.
Today split the class into 3 groups.
Each group needs a large piece of butcher paper -- different colors are good
Group 1: New England Colonies
Group 2: Middle Colonies
Group 3: Southern Colonies
Each group is responsible to:
- draw the BIG map of their colony group (new england, middle or southern)
- Label each colony with
- Name of colony
- Types of industry (cotton farming, tobacco farming, lumber, coal, etc.)
- Major cities
- Year founded
- Color each colony
- Decorate the map as you deem necessary
- Pin their map in the appropriate area in relation to the other BIG colony maps.
