New England Colonies
  • The New England Colonies were largely farming and
    fishing communities.
  • The people made their own clothes and shoes.
  • They grew much of their own food.
  • Crops like corn and wheat grew in large numbers,
    and much was shipped to England.
  • Foods that didn't grow in America were shipped
    from England.
  • Boston was the major New England port.

  • Were part agriculture, part industrial.
  • Wheat and other grains grew on farms in
    Pennsylvania and New York.
  • Factories in Maryland produced iron
  • Factories in Pennsylvania produced paper and
    textiles.
  • Trade with England was plentiful in these
    colonies as well.

Middle Colonies
  • Founded by people looking to practice their own
    religion or to make money.
  • Many of these people didn't bring their families
    with them from England and were the perfect
    workers for the hard work required in ironworks
    and shipyards.

Southern Colonies
  • Almost entirely agricultural.
  • Main feature was the plantation, a large plot of
    land that contained many acres of farmland and
    buildings in which lived the people who owned the
    land and the people who worked the land. (A large
    part of the workforce was African slaves, who
    first arrived in 1619.)
  • Southern plantations grew tobacco, rice, and
    indigo, which they sold to buyers in England and
    elsewhere in America.

Southern Colonies
  • The founders of the Southern Colonies wanted to
    make money.
  • They brought their families, and kept them on the
    plantations.
