You will be creating a final project for this unit on The Settlers of America. Using Bookr, find a picture that shows each chapter we studied:
The First Americans
The Spanish Explore America
The Pilgrims' Thanksgiving
The English Settle America
The French Come To America
For each picture, please write in your own words one piece of information you learned about that chapter that you think is interesting or important, and why you think it is interesting or important.
Also, please write why each group came to North America.
Each Bookr slideshow can only be four pages, so you will need to make two of them, email the links to your email, and then copy and paste their url addresses in the comments section.
Make one final page in your project that represents your ethnic culture. Please answer this question: Which of the groups we have studied had reasons closest to yours or your family's for coming to this country?
Watch this clip from the movie "Last Of The Mohicans." Based on what we have learned so far, why do you think many Native Americans supported French over the British?
WITH A PARTNER:
If you have not already done it, work with a partner and complete this Make and Break about French and English Explorers. Put the paragraphs in order in a Word Document and print it out. After each paragraph write the words that are new to you and write the clue word or words.
