Today and tomorrow in the computer lab you will complete a colony and state report. The purpose of this assignment is for you to examine the past (colony) and compare it to the present day (state). During this project you will research the impacts geography, religion, weather, and other people played when establishing a colony or a state.
During this project, I want you to remember our new classroom expectations. I expect this work to be appropriate for an end-of-the-year fifth grader. Please take your time, write in complete sentences, use correct grammar and punctuation and do your very best work.
