Exploration & Colonization Unit

AWESOME UNIT PACKAGE!!! If you are a brand new teacher or switching subjects, grades, on personal leave, have a substitute, or homeschooling. This is everything you need for Exploration & Colonization Unit in U.S. History.

All you have to do is download and you will have the teacher edition, which includes all activities, worksheets, projects, evaluations, rubrics, exams, and answer keys.
