Title: Good morning, Scholars!


1
Good morning, Scholars!
  • Create a new entry in your journal Southern
    Colonies

Southern Colonies
  • Geography and Climate
  • Fertile soil
  • Very long growing seasons
  • This area was very warm and sunny

3
Southern Colonies
  • Economy (how they made their money)
  • Plantation agriculture such as cotton, rice,
    tobacco, indigo, and sugar cane.
  • Southern crops took many nutrients out of the
    soil that were hard to replace.
  • Farms needed to be much larger to profitable
  • This helped develop the plantation system caused
    people to be much more spread out across the
    Southern colonies than in the Middle and New
    England colonies.

Southern Colonies
  • Virginia
  • Maryland
  • North and South Carolina
  • Georgia
  • Using the atlas, label these colonies on the map.

Virginia
  • Founded for economic reasons
  • John Smith
  • Jamestown 1607
  • Virginia House of Burgesses
  • The first elected law-making body in the
    colonies.
  • Provided local control over some issues so
    colonists didnt have to wait for Britain to
    decide the outcome of all things.
  • Expanded the idea of representative government

6
Maryland
  • Founded for religious freedom
  • Lord Baltimore
  • The Catholics
  • Maryland Toleration Acts
  • A law granting religious freedom in hopes of
    attracting more settlers.

Georgia
  • Founded as a refuge for debtors
  • a buffer between the Spanish and English
    colonies.
  • James Oglethorp

The Backcountry
  • Area to the West of the colonies
  • Settled by many different nationalities of
    people.

    Europe.

13
Salutary Neglect
  • British left the colonies on their own for many
    years.
  • This neglect helped the colonies learn how to
    deal with their own problems issues instead of
    waiting for Britain to fix things for them.

14
Representative Government
  • A government BY the people FOR the people
  • Enlightenment
  • John Locke
  • Believed people had rights that governments must
    protect
  • Democracy/Republicanism
  • English Bill of Rights, Magna Carta, and Glorious
    Revolution all help influence the idea of
    representative government in the colonies.

    Label the map with the correct symbols for the
    Southern colonies.
