This graphic organizer is designed to provide teachers and students with a detailed overview of the four major colonizers of North America (Spain, France, the Netherlands and England) and the development of the 13 English Colonies.

Teachers can provide this graphic organizer to students to complete in class or for homework. This graphic organizer does pair nicely with America’s History (Henretta). However, using that textbook for completion is not necessary. Students may use another textbook for completion, or even use the internet.

Although I’ve only provided a blank and filled-in version of this graphic organizer, everything provided is editable.  I’ve included a PowerPoint version (editable), a link to a Google Slides version (editable) and a PDF version (not editable). You can view more by clicking the preview here.

Topics include: The Spanish, French, Dutch and English colonies (all 13 with descriptions), the encomienda system, Plymouth (political, economic and religious characteristics), Jamestown (political, economic and religious characteristics), the Mayflower Compact, the Fundamental Orders of Connecticut, joint-stock company, the Act of Toleration, proprietorships

Individuals and Groups Include:  Pilgrims, Puritans, Peter Stuyvesant, William Bradford, John Winthrop, Roger Williams, Anne Hutchinson, William Penn, the Quakers, Lord Baltimore, James Oglethorpe

Events Include: The Pueblo Revolt, the Salem Witch Trials, Metacom’s War, Bacon’s Rebellion, the Stono Rebellion
