Colonial Period and Early Settlers

The website is pretty basic but has some really good information. It gives good introducation information and a nice overveiw. Also there is a timeline dating from 1607 to 1776 highlighting some key events like the settlement in Jamestown, Salem, and even when the spanish settled Florida in St. Augustine in 1565. The timeline and the basic information is easily understood and provides good background knowledge that the teacher can dive in deeper with during the lesson.
