1 Specialization and Interdependence in the Colonies by Mrs. Brown & Ms. Strassner
2 Let’s Review… Natural Resources – Human Resources – Capital Resources –Something that is found in nature and is valuable to humans (minerals, water, forests, animals etc.)People who hold jobs. Human Resources are people like fishermen, craftspeople, or store ownersHuman made goods such as lumber, tools, ships, or even the buildings where people work
3 New Vocabulary… Specialization – When people focus on producing one type of good or service based on their resourcesSOURCE:
4 New Vocabulary… Interdependence – “Inter” = BetweenDependence = To rely on someone or somethingInterdependence –When two or more people depend on each other for goods and servicesWhat do the candy makers depend on to make Reese’s Cups?
5 How does Specialization effect Interdependence Team A needs Widgets, but are unable to make them because they don’t have the resources, so they get their Widgets from Team BTeam ASpecializes in making LooptyLoopsTeam BSpecializesin making WidgetsTeam B needs Loopty Loops, but they don’t have the right resources either. So, Team B gets their Loopty Loops from Team A.
6 How did people use the natural resources How did climate, geographic features, and other available resources distinguish the three regions from each other?How did people use the natural resourcesof their region to earn a living?What are the benefits of specializationand trade?
7 On your blank map of the colonies, label the 13 colonies.

21 Let’s Review How did people use the natural resources How did climate, geographic features, and other available resources distinguish the three regions from each other?How did people use the natural resourcesof their region to earn a living?As a pod, discuss the 3 questions that we explored.Be prepared to share your answers!What are the benefits of specialization and trade?
