Why did the relationship between the English and the Wampanoag deteriorate after English settlement in Massachusetts? Students examine primary sources to place blame. They then rank the theories and discuss which is best. Students see what it’s like to be a historian.
What caused the Jamestown settlers to die? Students will examine 4 competing theories regarding the dramatic deaths at Jamestown in the early 1600’s - they will then examine the evidence supporting each of those theories.
This lesson helps students to understand the development of race-based slavery in the colony of Jamestown, Virginia, and how this slavery was different than previous forms of slavery practiced around the world.
This lesson is so much fun! This is a Google Slides (PowerPoint if needed) simulation that guides students on a journey through the 13 colonies. Students visit the New England, Middle and Southern colonies, and participate in fun decisions that make their experience unique!
This lesson provides a fun educational simulation for students to experience trade during the age of mercantilism. The simulation is set up so that they will see the impact of the rules created by England to limit trade, and increase profit. Students get to move around the room, trade goods, maximize their profits, and potentially smuggle!
Through this lesson, students learn about the Atlantic Slave trade and the Middle Passage by visiting 5 stations that discuss Triangular Trade and the experience of enslaved Africans along the middle passage. Students examine primary sources, statistical data, and interactive maps.
