Pilgrims, Puritans, and the New England Colonies

Regular price$4.99

All these resources go with this vide on "The Pilgrims, Puritans, and the Founding of the New England Colonies."

 This US history video lesson allows you to cut the lecture so you can spend your time supporting and connecting with students as they learn at their own pace.

As students watch they complete an interactive notesheet with fill-in-the-blanks, comprehension and critical thinking questions, and a review activity!  The driving question of the video is "How did Puritan beliefs shape the development of New England?" It teaches how religious discrimination against the Pilgrims and Puritans led them to migrate to the New World. Covering essential topics like Mayflower Compact, how Squanto the Wampanoags helped the Pilgrims at Plymouth survive, John Winthrop's City Upon a Hill, the Pequot War, and how Puritan beliefs led to close-knit towns with schools, townhall meetings, and churches. It teaches students how seeds of democracy were planted in New England but also repressive measures like taxes to support the church and limited voting to church members led others to challenge authority and start new colonies like the more liberal Connecticut and Roger Williams founding Rhode Island to be a safe haven for misfits and free thinkers.

The video helps visual learners with on-screen text of the main ideas and vocab, powerful images, and it reviews the important concepts to ensure comprehension.
