A Practical Experiment In Colonization

Role-play and simulation exercises are fantastic ways to help learners understand the reality behind many social and historical events. Pretending they are colonists, upper graders choose a location, create a history, establish laws, and design their village. Each group then compares and contrasts their experiences to those of the real American settlers. Modify the activity to fit almost any grade level.

Lesson Planet helps me with finding lesson plans that work. As a student teacher, my professors have told me not to try and recreate the wheel, use what is out there that works! Lesson Planet helps me to find ideas that I can tweak so they follow our state standards.
