The brochure contains columns and is two pages long. Use the first page (the first two columns) to describe the colonies and the reasons they were each established. The second page contains three columns. Use these columns to describe the varying lives of the colonists. Colonial Americans can be divided into six groups: Plantation Owners, Farmers, Artisans, Women, Indentured Servants, and Slaves.
There are image placeholders within the brochure template - the placeholders look like gray cameras. You should replace these image placeholders with more appropriate clip art images.
