Our Colonial Times lesson plan introduces students to the living conditions during Colonial Times in America. This interactive lesson engages the imagination and knowledge of students on what it was like being a child during the era. During this lesson, students are asked to
draft a first-person story and share their story with the class to further develop their research, written expression, and presentation skills. Students are also asked to label each of the original 13 colonies on a map in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson material.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify and describe living conditions during Colonial Times in America.
