Students in all U.S. History classes learned about colonization in the early years of our nation’s history. Students learned about the many different and interesting facets that lead to colonist establishing thirteen colonies in North America. To culminate our unit of instruction on colonization students were challenged with the assessment to make their own colony. Students were instructed to use their knowledge of colonization and create a colony of their own. Students selected a location for their colony within one of the original thirteen colonies. For their colonies the groups of students created a name, map, flag, business/industry, government, and an anthem. Students presented their colonies to their peers in class.
