Learn about Life in the Middle Colonies
This resource was created to accompany our Middle Colonies Instructional Slide Deck. It follows the pacing therein and provides students with places to record the climate, growing and harvesting crops, supplies and tools, education, and social life in the Middle colonies.
This activity asks students to create an image board representing the Middle Colonies. They will draw and color images representing the geography, climate, housing, education, and agriculture associated with the northernmost colonies. Once their image board is complete, students will write short captions explaining their images and what they represent for the colonial characteristics.
