Colonial Economic Regions:
U.S. History-Based Unit built on Google Earth

“Sir John explains that each of his sons has considered leaving England and moving to British America. He wants your advice as to whether his sons should move, and if so, where his sons should take up residence in the New World. After a long conversation about colonial economics, the father hands you a contract. You decide to accept his offer of work by signing the contract.”

Working as advisors to a British father in the early 1700s, students must help the three sons of their contractor determine the most appropriate colonial region to pursue their chosen career path. The “advisors” must consider economic, religious and legal variables as they construct multi-media presentations.
