Google Slide, PDF | 2 pages | Grades: 3 - 6

Provide your students a 13 colonies project to end your unit on American colonization.

American Colonies for Kids – Culminating Task

Are you building a unit around the original thirteen colonies of America? Do you want a culminating activity that isn’t the basic, everyday poster project? We’ve got you covered! Have your students demonstrate their learning with a Thirteen Colonies Brochure Project! 

This template guides your students to research and displays their learning about the housing, food, climate, education, and life in

  • The New England Colonies 
  • The Middle Colonies
  • The Southern Colonies

As a final task, students will also write an opinion piece on the colony that they feel would be the most habitable.

To use, copy the brochure template front to back. Have students fold their brochures into thirds and complete each section. 

Through this activity, students will show their knowledge of American History during the time of the development of the original thirteen American colonies.
