This is a compare and contrast lesson comparing Jamestown and Plymouth Colonies. There is a one-page graphic organizer and two readings on each colony. I usually divide my class in half and they each research one colony and fill in the graphic organizer. They then partner up and share it with their partner to compare and contrast the two colonies with their partner. Contact Me ☟ Subscribe by email to get updates, sale posts, and free products!
