18 Reflections on Key Questions Click here to go back to Main Menu From what I know before this project I was taught that the people that first left new england left because of no free religion. Now in the north colonies they do not except different religions… strange right? Now I know that they didn’t always settle because of religion, but because of new economy, new job opportunities, and a new chance…

22 Climate of the Region The Middle Colonies had a mild climate with warm summers and mild winters.

23 Landforms/Vegetation of the Region The geography of the Middle Colonies had a mix of the New England and Southern features but had fertile soil and land that was suited to farming

24 Typical Occupations Found in the Region Exported agricultural products and natural resources. The Middle colonies are often called the breadbasket colonies because they grew so many crops, especially wheat. The Middle colonies built flour mills where wheat was ground into flour, then shipped to England. A typical farm was 50 to 150 acres consisting of a house, barn, yard and fields. The Middle Colonies were also able to manufacture iron ore products such as plows, tools, kettles, nails and large blocks of iron which they exported to England.

25 How They Governed Themselves The government was simular to the New England colonies; Middle Colonies elected their own legislature, they were all democratic, they all had a governor, governor's court, and a court system.

The most profitable region was the southern region with its massive agricultural farms and huge plantations.
