The Pack contains associated resources for the learning experience, typically in the form of articles and videos. There is a teacher Pack (with only teacher information) and a student Pack (which contains only student information). As a teacher, you can toggle between both to see everything.
Here are the teacher pack items for The Southern Colonies:

Can you make a guess what it was used for? Hint: It is related to the map and it is NOT a gravestone.
The stone is called a crown stone. It was used as a boundary marker, and it shows the family coat of arms for the colony whose territory it faces on the border.
There was a long-running border dispute among the colonies of Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Delaware, arising from contradictory measurements given in the Pennsylvania Charter. The conflict was resolved in 1767 when the colonies hired surveyors to draw the border, which became known as the Mason-Dixon Line, named after the two surveyors.The crown stone shown above is one of many markers that were placed every five miles along the Mason-Dixon Line. The image shows the coat of arms of Maryland’s founding Calvert family. On the other side of the crown stone facing Pennsylvania territory are the arms of William Penn.
