Jamestown Colony, 1607

I don’t have a book for this so I made a storybook of the settlement using google images and the following videos interspersed at appropriate points in the story.

Travel to Jamestown
A closer look at location
John Smith
At one point my story invited us to try to broker a trade between the Native Americans and Settler pointing out they couldn’t communicate verbally and the complications this might have caused. One child was the Native American and the other the Spanish settler.
Powhatan and Pocahontas
Note: there are tons of Pocahontas coloring pages available for free online.

Activity to end:
Make a model Jamestown together.

  1. Spanish settler? In Virginia? There weren't any.
