Do Now (Voice Level 0) 5 minutes: 
On a full sheet of paper, make a prediction: What do you think life in the colonies was like? What problems do you think they faced day-to-day? 

Whole Group (Voice Level 0) 30 minutes:

We will be watching the America: The Story of Us episode titled Rebels which covers life in the colonies. As you watch, you need to take at least 15 bullet point notes!

The second part of class will be spent independently reading stories about life in the colonies and creating a circle map. After you have completed both readings and your circle map, you must write a 5-8 sentence summary of life in the colonies using your circle map. 

Here are the readings.
