- Lesson Plan
- Join to access all included materials
Primary source research, secondary source readings, and discussion provide the understanding necessary for young scholars to create a colonial persona, and simulate a situation appropriate for this person, time, and place. While the activity focuses on Deerfield, Massachusetts, it can be adapted to other colonial settlements. There is no assessment or rubric included; it suggests learners create one collaboratively.
