Product Description
These assignments can be used in a U.S. History course to reinforce or review information about Jamestown. These activities encourage students to demonstrate their knowledge of the events important to the founding of Jamestown in creative ways. Any of these assignments can be modified from an assignment for a single student to one involving pairs or groups. Assignments typically take less than one class period, and most assignments may be completed at home, if necessary. Assignments can be used independently of or in conjunction with each other.

These activities can be used:
• As a way to reinforce content taught during a lesson
• As a review after teaching a lesson
• As a starting activity to help students access their prior knowledge
• As extra practice for a student who is having trouble with a certain concept
