  1. Whereas religion was the basis of life and government in the Northern colonies, the lack of religion in the Southern colonies provided the basis for agriculture.

South wanted slavesNorth did not idt

in a nutshell, the new England colonies hwere cold, and the economy was more based on shops. they were more crowded and had a bigger pop. the southern colonies were based on farming and were mostly warm

New England Colonies- Industrial:Shipbuilding fishing and lumber Middle Colonies- Industrial/Agricultural:Furs, Fishing, Whaling Southern Colonies- Agricultural: Cotton, Rice, Indigo, Tobacco

ANSWER:One of the differences between the Middle Colonies and the Southern Colonies, was that while the southern colonies produced such crops as tobacco, rice, indigo (a plant used for making blue dye), and cotton; the middle colonies grew wheat, which would become a profitable crop.Another difference between the two regions was, that the middle colonies carried on coastal trade with the New England, and southern colonies. For the location of the middle colonies was a great location for ports.

Every colony was unique, but one of the main differences between colonies were that they were split into three different groups (the New England Colonies, the Middle Colonies, and the Southern colonies) that produced 3 different things, came from 3 main countries of origin, for three different reasons, and they became one, the thirteen colonies.

Southern Colonies had more land so they produced more crop and they were a more rural area, and the New England colonies had more manufacturing buildings and they were a more urban area. Plus the southern colonies had slavery whiles the New England colonies did not.The middle colonies also produced and had slaves but barely as many as the southern colonies.

Farming was a big part of the 13 colonies.The fact that they[southern colonies] could grow so much more than them[new England colonies] made them grow soically apart.Wich now the Southern colonie and the New England colonies are niow separated.

whwt is the min difference between middle,southern,and northern colonies

The soils and climates of these three different colony groups were different. New England colonies were in regions were soil was not as fertile as in the Middle colonies. Similarly, the climate in the Southern colonies was warmer and the crops raised were rice, tobacco, and indigo. The economies of these colonies was crop based. The Middle colonies grew many different types of grains.

The middle colonies were in between the northern colonies and southern colonies, and they did not depend on slaves as much as the southern colonies. And it was nicknamed the bread basket colonies. The southern colonies depended on slaves and was mostly made up of huge plantations. There wasn't really anything else... Similarities: They were both made up of Americans, both in the New England colonies, ruled by a king, and both are along a coast.

New Amsterdam lay between the Southern colonies and the colonies.

What was one of the most important differences between the northern economy and the southern economy? The northern economy was industrially based. The Southern economy was agriculturally based.

When the 13 colonies were established, there were 3 regions: New England Colonies(furthest North), Middle Colonies(between the other two regions), and the Southern Colonies(furthest south). Because of this region's location(South of the two other regions), it was named the Southern Colonies which consisted of Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia.
