Early Colonies

By Olivia Martinez

The New England Colonie

First off, the land of the Pilgrims and Puritan's was flat and the land had lots of forest. They also had thin, rocky soil. They're climate was the coldest out of all of the colonies. If you were in these times in order to make a living you would have to know how to farm, be a merchant , cut timber, build, fish or hunt, you would also have to know about the government, how to priest, and finally how to be a Puritan leader. Also you can sell goods such as weaponry, fish and whale, or even timber. They are a lot of natural resources also but, I am only going to tell you a little majority like fish, whales and timber which is made out of trees. These people were Christian and they believed in freedom. They also believed in trading goods with local natives and Puritans or Pilgrims.

Similarities and Differences Between the 3 Colony's

First, we will start with the similarities. The first simularatie is that colony all believe in some type of religion that is related to christian. And they all trade goods with local natives and other villagers. Also they all have a large farming land and farmers.

Now, we are starting on differences. The first difference I found was that the southern colony has farming on plantations as a job. Also I found that the Middle Colony has very lumpy/wavy land which means that they might not have as many houses or farmland. And last but not least, I found that the New England colony has a lot of jobs and livings such as cuting timber, farming, being a merchant, building, fishing or hunting, the government, priest, and finally a Puritan leader,
