Mrs. Voye's Class News

Colony Research and Presentations

We formed expert groups and researched the 13 colonies. Each group read articles and determined the natural resources of the area and the businesses started in that colony. We then created posters and presented the information to the class. The rest of the class took notes until we had learned about all 13 colonies. The next day, we met in groups for Southern, New England, and Middle colonies to compare and contrast our information.

Colonial Voices - Hear Them Speak

Analyzing Poetry

Each morning, we read a new poem from this AMAZING book. Each poem is written from a different person in this colonial town leading up to the Boston Tea Party. We decide if the person is a Patriot, Loyalist, or Neutralist and must cite evidence for our choice. Then, we look for figurative language and poetic elements.
