American Colonies: Pop-Up Town Station Activity or Collaborative Project
In this student-approved and ready-to use American Colonies activity, students engage in the design of a Colonial Town using pop-up buildings provided here.

Students read informational texts on buildings typically found in a town from Colonial America and then use the information to draw maps and build their town with pop-up buildings, recreating a little of Colonial America. The activity is rounded out with a reflective journal entry. We learn more through experience, and this activity provides students the opportunity to explore in a visual and kinesthetic way Colonial America.
