Welcome to the

Thirteen Colonies WebQuest!

Your expertise is needed immediately!  The Queen is setting sail for the New World, and needs your help choosing where to settle.  Each member of your group will become an expert about one of the three colonial regions: New England, Middle, or Southern.  You will research and gather information about your region to present to the Queen to help her decide.  It is important to give the similarities and differences to best inform the Queen about each region.  After becoming experts, you will create a PowerPoint presentation to inform the Queen about the colonies.
