Would You Survive Jamestown?

A game that my students love! Would you survive Jamestown? This is a fun activity to complete a unit on the early English settlements of North America, including Jamestown and Roanoke. In this simulation-style game, students will make various choices (similar to the choices early colonists had to make) in order to see if they would survive life in the early Early English settlements.

Back to School - Why Study History?

I just love the way this lesson for teaching history is all together for you. It includes primary sources, a reading and spectrum activity that allows students to explore the question "Why study history?" What a great way to start out the school year!
