Immigrants' Experiences in Colonial North Carolina

This Immigrants' Experiences in Colonial North Carolina lesson plan also includes:

What would it have been like to leave your birthplace and move to a brand new colony? Why might you have decided to move? What challenges would you have faced? As part of a series of lessons about the history of North Carolina, middle schoolers examine primary sources that document the experiences of two groups of settlers in North Carolina during the colonial period. Using graphic templates, readers organize information and compare the experiences of Moravians who traveled by wagon from Pennsylvania to the already established Piedmont area, and immigrants from Germany who sailed across the Atlantic to settle in the less-established Coastal Plain. Links to the primary sources and templates are included.
