Colonial Williamsburg

Our Colonial Williamsburg lesson plan teaches students about Colonial Williamsburg, including its history, its importance in the 1700s, and its continued significance today. Students learn how to locate it on a map, how to identify it, and numerous facts about life in Colonial Williamsburg both in the past and today.

Our Colonial Williamsburg lesson plan introduces students to Colonial Williamsburg, its importance to America in the 1700s and its significance to America today. Many students may have heard of Williamsburg, but may not know its history and role during Colonial Times. During this lesson, students are asked to use their creativity and critical thinking skills to work with a partner to create an updated planned city, which includes everything a person might need to live there, in order to illustrate the challenges that city planners, such as those who designed Williamsburg, face. Students are also asked to answer questions about Colonial Williamsburg and its history in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson material.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify and locate Colonial Williamsburg and explain its importance in the history of America, as well as its significance today.
