13 Colonies Packet

Thirteen Colonials Unit! 70-pages

This year we are studying American history.  We have just finished our unit on the establishment of the thirteen colonies. This new 70-page packet includes notebook pages and chronology cards that cover the 13 colonies and how they were established.  These worksheets and cards cover Roanoke, Jamestown, Plymouth, Massachusetts Bay and others!

13 Colonies Worksheet PacketThis packet also goes into some detail about the Puritans and some well-known Puritan leaders because we are reading the Scarlet Letter for literature. 🙂

It also touches on the Salem Witch Trials and Bacon’s Rebellion.

My kids did an assignment where they had to read some of the transcripts from the Salem Witch Trials and discover what evidence was used against the person they chose.  The links and instructions are included in this packet. They really enjoyed delving into that and were pretty astonished by the “evidence” that was used to convict these people!

How do we use the pages?  Usually, I print out the full version and read that aloud while the kids take notes on either the fill-in-the-blank option or the blank page (depending on how much of a rush we are in!!).  Your kids can use the blank notebook pages provided to do their own research and write their own account.

There are also chronology cards that cover these key colonies and events.
