A Practical Experiment In Colonization

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

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.
