Rhode Island Colonists in the New England colonies endured bitterly cold winters and mild summers. Land was flat close to the coastline but became hilly and mountainous farther inland. Soil was generally rocky, making farming difficult. Cold winters reduced the spread of disease. New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware The Middle colonies spanned the Mid-Atlantic region of America and were temperate in climate with warm summers and cold winters. Geography ranged from:
coastal plains along the coastline, rolling hills in the middle, and Applachian Mountains farther inland.
This area had good coastal harbors for shipping.
Climate and land were ideal for agriculture.
These colonies were known as the “breadbasket” because of the large amounts of barley, wheat, oats, and rye that were grown here. Maryland, Virginia, North and South Carolina, Georgia warm climate
Geography ranged from coastal plains in the east to piedmont farther inland. The westernmost regions were mountainous. The soil was perfect for farming and the growing season was longer than in any other region. Hot summers, however, propagated diseases such as malaria and yellow fever. The Southern economy was almost entirely based on:
Crops were grown on large plantations where slaves and indentured servants worked the land. The Middle Colonies enjoyed a successful and diverse economy. Largely agricultural, farms in this region grew numerous kinds of crops, most notably grains and oats. Logging, shipbuilding, textiles production, and papermaking were also important in the Middle Colonies.
