Students write as if they were a Jamestown settler to describe the hardships the settlers endured. Focus on appropriate paragraph formation with main idea and supporting details. Purchase scroll paper at Office Depot or Staples, and students are very excited to see their writing printed out on it!
I also let my students choose English names to fit their true diary entry. This writing piece is usually a fan favorite! Enjoy! :)
