Once students have learned about the 13 colonies, they can create a travel brochure! This is a fun way for students to demonstrate what they've learned about one of the colonies. They can choose the colony or the teacher can assign them. In this activity, students will create a travel brochure for a colony, including examples of natural resources, jobs, and other opportunities the colonies sought out.
Students can print and fold their brochures and use them as part of a presentation. They can pretend to be a tour guide or a travel agent trying to convince people to move to the colony!
You can also find more brochure templates to add to this assignment if you want to provide students with a few options.
