UNIT 1- EXPLORATION AND COLONIZATION
This week we continued our unit on exploration and colonization. We discussed the reasons for French, Spanish, and English colonization. This week we will look at the 13 English colonies in depth. Key vocabulary to review include mercantilism, charter, Plymouth, Jamestown, 1607, Mayflower Compact, and House of Burgesses. There will be a quiz this Friday over these terms. The Unit 1 quizlet is down below.
