Your expertise is needed immediately! 500 people are scheduled to set sail from England to the colonies next month.  They are still undecided which colony would be the best to settle and build their new homes.  Your colony has hired you to create a newsletter, pamphlet or brochure to entice these people to settle in your colony.  The information you provide will be used to help the new colonists pick the best colony that will suit their needs

You will need to thoroughly research your colony and all the other colonies to best inform the new colonists of what your colony has to offer.  Through researching the colonization of America, you will discover the similarities and differences of the Southern, Middle and New England Colonies. For each region you will uncover the hardships that the settlers faced while creating a new life that was accepting of everyone. You will discover the challenges they faced territorial, differences and similarities, religious factors, and slavery issues.

After analyzing your findings, you will create a newsletter, pamphlet or brochure using Microsoft Publisher to be sent at once to England.
