Colonial Period

This article posted by Scholastic is a beneficial article because of how user friendly the website is. I like that the website is broken down into a timeline format where you can select different periods in American history. This article discusses how colonial settlers came to America for religious reasons, to make more money, and to have a better life. Those who came to America, settled into thirteen different colonies, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maryland, Georgia, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Delaware. The article talks about how the settlers had to figure out how to live of the land. This would be a good website for children to use because it relates back to what children in the colonial period use to do. They talk about that most children new saw the inside of a school house. Instead, they learned about the world by doing things their parents did. This website is very easy to find what you are looking for and the lay out is easy to use.Explorers and More
