We Americans now depend on most electronics to go about our lives. We use electronics to communicate, find information, socialize, and now to do homework. Back in the day before the United States were born people like Ben Franklin and others were creating these wonderful inventions to help easy the life of colonial people. The Middle Colonies needed a plow to fasten the process of farming crops. The virus smallpox started an epidemic and a vaccine would help lower the risk of people getting the disease. School in the Middle Colonies were they taught kids how to read, write, and math. The Middle colonies in the 1600’s to early 1700’s were known as “breadbasket” colonies making flour, rye, and wheat and having many factories. These colonies had the most fertile soil of all the colonies which made it very easy to plant most crops. If the farmers had a steel plow to help them do their daily farm work it would be much faster and ease the work. A steel plow would help the farmer plant and clear field faster than doing it all by hand. This steel plow would help clear and plant seed faster. Smallpox was an epidemic that thrived in Great Britain during the middle ages. This disease killed killed 90% of the people who got the disease in Massachusetts in the 1617.

New Jersey was the colony with more than college which could help out the the new colonist. Sadly all of them we very overpriced that only very fortunate kids could go there and many kids who could not afford just did not learn about anything. If the Middle colonies had just one prestigious school that allowed the less fortunate kids to learn how to read and write. Sooner or later the other colonies are going to test it out and see for themselves. Once they realize that it makes a difference in their daily lives it will start to form into one big project that make school what it is in
Boston Smallpox Epidemic of 1721: When smallpox broke out in Boston, Cotton Mather introduced an untested medical procedure called “inoculation”, which would introduce a small amount of the virus to a patient, in hoping they would become immune to it. Many were opposed to it, even though it worked. Many people died due to the epidemic. 31. Common Sense: Thomas Paine wrote a book called "Common Sense", it sold more than 150,000 copies when the population was only 3 million.
In the Middle Colonies, there was fertile soil and part of it was hilly and part of it was flat. There were some ‘mountains’, wide valleys, and fast rivers. In the Southern Colonies, like the Middle Colonies, the land there was fertile. It was very humid there. Their summers were very warm and rainy, and in the winters, it was a mild climate so it did not get very cold.
Colonists who came to America differed greatly in backgrounds and settled for various reasons: Colonist in the New England Colony came to America primarily because they were religious reformers and separatist seeking a new way of life; the Middle Colony was inhabited by a tolerant and diverse group of people with different backgrounds; And the Southern Colony was mainly inhabited by English aristocrats, small farmers, and slaves. Because each colonial region inhabited different groups of colonists the social development differed greatly in each region. New England was founded on the Puritan faith and maintained a strong sense of faith, family, and community. New Englan was very strict on enforcing a strong sense Puritan religion, the lifestyle of colonist revolved around the puritan faith, so much so, it was referred to the "city upon a hill". Contrasting greatly with the New England Colony, the Middle Colony was greatly social and religiously diverse.
The middle colonies were made of New York, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. The southern colonies were made of Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia. The New England colonies only farmed enough for their families because the soil was not fertile and there were long winters, which made the farming seasons short . The New England colonies were mostly Anglican religion and were evenly distributed on the social pyramid
In the late 1600’s, many European settlers arrived in North America in hopes of escaping the hardships they faced back home. America initially promised colonists the wealth, religious freedom, and escape from oppression they desired. New England was home to dense forests, and hills which was not optimal for crop growth. Therefore, the colonists directed their attention towards trade and commerce. The people in this region were devoutly religious and believed in the education of children.
Welcome to the Middle colonies. Have fun with your chores. A lot of work is required in these colonies which are now known as: New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware. There was a lot of farming involved in these settlements. Although there is a lot of work to be done, when that is finished, it’s game time.
The Northern settlers were college educated and strictly puritan families, the Southern settlers were single men who sought land and were not college educated or particularly religious. New England was built upon “conformity based on puritan religion”. They also built many schools, for every 50 children there was one school. Even today, we can see the lasting effects of the importance of education in New England, as we hold many of the best colleges in the country. The Southern settlers were mostly single men, second and third sons of nobles.
The New England colonies were first founded in the last 16th to 17th century as a sanctuary for differing religious groups. New England was made up of the Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and New Hampshire. New Hampshire, however, was formed for economic reasons instead of religious ones. The Chesapeake region, which is made up of the colonies of Maryland and Virginia, was founded by the British colonies for the purpose of farming. However, by the 1700’s, despite both being settled by Englishmen, New England and the Chesapeake region had developed differently.
The colonies of Massachusetts and Virginia were a start of the new world for England. These were founded by similar people but, with their strikingly differences, grew into separate political, economic and social structures. Both settlements arose from over-crowdedness in England: people wanted a better life. Virginia was settled by men who were single and looking for opportunities and wealth. They were part of the Anglican religion.
In the Southern colonies, children usually started their education at home. (It was not super important to them). The distances between farms and plantations made town schools very hard to get to. Plantation owners regularly hired tutors or house maids to teach boys’ math, classical languages, science, geography, history, etiquette, and plantation management. When the boys had the opportunity to have an education outside of the home the schools were quite strict and often had much punishment for doing the wrong.
In the 1700’s , people were travelling from Europe and England to join the Colonies. These colonies had many resources available, and the port cities of New England were quickly turning into trading centers. One of the most abundant commodities in New England were its trees. Especially the white pine trees, which, untouched, had grown tall, straight and wide, optimal for the masts of British naval ships. Meanwhile, in England, most of the suitable trees had already been harvested and used, therefore they saw the opportunity using these trees from the colonies presented.
The New England families tend to travel together, they had a strong sense of community and really would watch out for one another like family. Education was important to the New England colony as so was religion and they were required to study the bible. The Southern Colonies were founded as an economic venture to create wealth where as for the New England colony were mainly about religious reformers and separatists. They were looking for a new way to praise God, that’s not to say that religion wasn’t important to the southern colonies because it was they just had a different way of going about it than the New England colonies. The religion in the southern colonies was more diverse.
However this was not the most important thing, the most important thing was their education. Their education can be seen in a way as part of their culture. New Englanders were people who were highly educated and view their education as a way of living and also as a necessity. For the founders of the colony of New England established little settlements that offered education for the kids and also for the adults. Also as the people settled in the colony they brought in with them books and also brought other literal devices that helped them gain more education.
The thirteen colonies, which were divided into 3 regions, were all different and unique in many ways. However, the diversity among the New England Colonies, the Middle Colonies and the Southern Colonies is perhaps what made them so distinctive. The differences between these three regions affected the way they lived, but later, they gained knowledge by analyzing their mistakes and differences. Although these three regions only had a few things in common, it was the differences among them that helped them grow and learn from one another.
In New England and the Chesapeake region, motives for colonization, religion, and geography were key features that helped create two unique societies of people. Influences from the crown laid the groundwork for colonial growth but in the end, it was the people in the colonies that were the true developers of their lives. Their hard work and determination is what helped shape the colonies and differentiate them not only from each other but from their founding country. The colonies of America may have been settled by one country, but they could not be more
