“Adventures in Virginia” is a light hearted play created to review the Virginia Studies Standards of Learning (SOL’s) for grades 4 and 5, v.2 and v .3 in the Curriculum Framework. It includes the required vocabulary, physical geography, Native American language groups, early settlers in Jamestown, John Smith, and. Powhaten, etc. All of the important terms and names are underlined so that they stand out as important concepts or information. Also the names given to the fictitious characters for the Native American language groups are close to what they may have been during that time. At times the vocabulary and syntax shifts to replicate that of the 1600’s, at least in the eyes of a child. The premise of the play is that Ed and Pam have received grant money to reenact life in early Virginia. They have traveled across the Atlantic in a rather small sailing vessel that is both powered by wind and solar energy. They eat hardtack and tea, and their only source for direction is a map drawn in 1492. Time goes back and forth between present day and the 1600’s, as only can be done with the freedom of the pen. The play has 11 scenes with a total of 48 pages. This play is a wonderful integration of Social Studies, Language Arts, and Reading. The document is written in Microsoft Word.
