Coming to America

Students use presentation notes to write a persuasive letter to a student and family in England as though they were colonists trying to get them to come to America. They also interview a neighbor or relative to determine why their families came to Hamilton to be shared with the class. Finally, students write persuasive letters as presented in culminating activity.
