Hi All,

When I was teaching 7th grade Civics, I found a cute little way of learning the order that the 13 colonies came into being. I cannot find my original link to the activity but I have found something similar and here is the link:

http://cicorp.com/ci/principles/13States/index.htm

The teacher reads out the "story" to the students then the first student repeats what the first "picture" (colony) is. Then the next student repeats what the first student says, and adds the second colony. (The teacher repeats the story needed.)

At the bottom of the page there are two more links for variations of this activity. All activities involve listening and then repeating the steps in order.
There is a picture that shows the ways of remembering each step. When finished, each student knows the name of each colony and the order in which each became a colony.

I gave each student a map of the 13 colonies with blanks to fill in for each colony and separate blanks showing which were middle colonies, etc.
