Colonial South News
Project Published 8/22/11 Last updated on 2/28/20
In this unit, grouped students read background information and study historical maps about the Southern colonies in North America dating from 1585-1763. They will plan and develop a news show, using digital video/audio technologies, to highlight important events, and conduct interviews with fellow classmates posing as colonial settlers and Native American Indians. This unit works towards standards in reading, writing, speaking, listening, and 21st Century technology skills.
