Welcome Back, Folks!
We previewed our new packet, Lucky 13. The BrainPop video, Thirteen Colonies, provided a short overview of the factors (economy, society, political, and geography) that influenced the development of the 3 Colonial Regions. The video was a springboard for analyzing and interpreting a Map, Making A Living. MAP SAMPLES may be accessed in the classroom. We also used the ActiVotes for a Cookie/Class War using the ActiVote Quiz. The highest class average wins. Stay tuned for the winners announcement.

Students will use the iBooks App on the iPads or the Google Docs on the blog to interpret and analyze text and images. Chester the Crab Comix written and illustrated by Bentley Boyd, provide engaging snapshots of people, places and events in time. Check out his website by CLICKING HERE.
Please follow these steps when Reading for Information – Chester Comix:
1st: Preview questions/prompts.
2nd: Look at the images ONLY.
3rd: Do a QUICK READ.
4th: Read carefully and Respond to questions/prompts.
COLONIAL SNAPSHOT POINTERS:
SUMMARIZING – Ask and answer the questions, WHO? WHAT? WHERE? for each Panel with text.
Students will examine INTERACTION between the colonists and Native Americans. Use the same Comic Strip Packet ABOVE. Focus is placed on historical thinking:
- Compare and Contrast the ECONOMIC, POLITICAL, and GEOGRAPHIC factors of Native Americans and Colonial Society.
- Chronological Thinking: History is the study of people, places and events in time. Therefore, students will analyze the cause and effect relationship between events by studying King Philip’s War.
Concepts and skills (interpreting and analyzing text and images) provide the background to understand future concepts (i.e., The French and Indian War”).
Please watch the short clip below summarizing King Philip’s War and gain a better understanding of the devastating impact of colonial settlement for the Native American tribes in New England.
Students will wrap up the inter-ACTIVE review of the Crab Walks. Strive for Accuracy by checking and editing your responses and reading directions carefully.
