New England Colonies
Transcript of New England Colonies
Climate and Geography
The New England Colonies included: Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and New Hampshire. The climate included longer, colder winters in comparison to the other winters. The soil in New England was very rocky, making it very hard to plant crops. It did however, have lots of trees, which gave the citizens lots of lumber and wood for building boats. Also, since it was located near the bay it greatly succeeded on ocean/shipping branch. In addition, the sea was their source of wealth.
Pilgrims and other English people were the inhabitants of these colonies. The Puritans were a religious group that was formed in the English Colonies. They were very strict people that stressed godliness, education, hard work and honesty. As a result, the citizens of these colonies all taught their children to read and write, as well as their religion.
Entertainment and Recreation
There wasn't much time for fun in the colonies. However, when there was time, which was on sabbath (sunday) people would visit one an other, and attend church and meetings.
John Winthrop- Puritan who found Boston, Massachusetts.
Roger Williams- Minister that disagreed with Puritans. He was expelled and he found Rhode Island. He began the colony of Providence Plantation, which provided a refuge for religious minorities.
Anne Hutchinson- Expelled from Massachusetts because of her religious beliefs.
Thomas Hooker- Puritan minister who left Massachusetts because he didn't like the rules. He found Connecticut.
Lifestyle & Jobs
Life in the colonies was very hard. Everyone, that could walk, could work. Even though there wasn't very good soil, every family had their little plantation. Men did the hunting and farming, while women did the cooking and created clothes. There was also a Puritan Church where everyone, by law, had to attend all-day sunday.
Have you ever wanted to travel to New England, but stay in the comfort of your own home? Now you can! Come visit The New England Colonies.

The Government in the New England Colonies was Representative. This means that the citizens, in this case the English, elected the "leader". This "leader" would then represent the people in important decisions. Kind of like what we have now.
