Describe the primary economic activity for each of the three colonial regions: the New England colonies, the Middle colonies, and the Southern colonies. Explain how the geography of each region helped determine its economy.
I don't know how to explain it and I don't remember being taught this.

The New England colonies had a longer growing season. Therefore, they were able to grow rice very efficiently. The Middle Colonies relied on trading since their terrain was rugged and rocky. The Southern Colonies, known as the breadbasket colonies, grew wheats and grains.
