We are moving quickly through the explorers and first peoples of the Americas. This week we are working on understanding our colonies and what motivated people to colonize together. Last week, students tested over Chapter 1-2. This is a good time to remind kiddos that the quality of their homework is directly related to the tools they have for studying.

Monday - Colonial Fair - create a sales pitch and convince others to come to your colony
Tuesday - Finish Chapter 3 - distinguishing the characteristics of each colony
Wednesday - motives for colonizing
Thursday & Friday - Chapter 4 - What was life like in the colonies

Next week: Chapter 3 & 4 test on Tuesday
