Settlement Growing Pains Unit Package

$77.96 $70.00

No one could say that life in colonial America was easy, yet shipload after shipload of newcomers from all over Europe arrived daily, each person filled with dreams of a better future. Against the backdrop of the French and Indian War, our literature provides glimpses into everyday life and adventure in the colonies. As we explore common values and behaviors of the time through George Washington’s writings, alongside compelling issues like indentured servitude and cultural differences, students are challenged to discuss and apply concepts within the framework of family ideals. At the same time, since successful colonies were so closely linked to an area’s normal conditions, study of the atmosphere, climate, soil, and weather follows naturally. Building further on the settlement theme, research and mapping states in the New England and Mid-Atlantic regions is enhanced by learning about igneous rocks, and the fun of regional cooking, great games and hands-on activities!
