RevoltuionMap (Download)

With the sequencing complete you were able to list the events on you Map sheet. Once your list was finished you could then see not only the order, but the location of these events on the Map

The cities were located on the sequencing papers and you could now place them on the Map

Coloring:

Using your Journal you were able to go back in time and use your previous maps as references so that you could separate this map into the 3 colonial regions: Southern, Middle, and New England Colonies.

Closing:

On the back of the map you had to explain the significance of each of those events.
