Product Description
This lesson focuses on the rise of slavery in Colonial Virginia as a result of the importance of agriculture (tobacco). It begins with a detailed reading passage that reviews VS.3e (how Africans arrived in Virginia during the early days of Jamestown) and further explains the development of tobacco as a cash crop (VS.4a). It helps students see the many cause and effect relationships related to the growth of tobacco and the agricultural economy in Colonial Virginia and the rise of slavery. Additionally, students can use context clues in the text to better understand some of the key vocabulary for Virginia Studies (economy, cash crop, plantation, agriculture). After reading the passage, you can complete a question set, a vocabulary activity and a cause and effect chart. Your students will have a very clear understanding of the vocabulary and concepts related to this important standard, and you will cover VS.1f (cause and effect relationships). Answer keys included!

Included in this set:

-Reading comprehension passage (1 page)
-Question set (2 pages: variety of question types + quick geography review)
-Vocabulary activity (1 page)
-Cause and Effect Chart (1 page)
