Jamestown Task Cards- 5th Grade and Higher
Description of these task cards:

These quotes are directly from primary source documents concerning Jamestown. Very few words have been changed to aid understanding.

In my classroom, I break students into group of 3-4. Each group receives a Response Sheet. I hand 3 task cards to each group. I remind them to match the task card number with the number on the response sheet. I ask students to bring the cards, when they are finished with them, to a central location and choose new cards. I expect each group to answer each task card.

Task cards 1-10: Powhatan Indians-taken from various primary source quotations

Task cards 11-24: Interactions and Life at Jamestown-taken from various primary source quotations

Task cards 25-32: Laws of Jamestown-taken from Articles, Lawes, and Orders, Divine, Politique, and Martiall for the Colony in Virginea: first established by Sir Thomas Gates Knight, Lieutenant Generall, the 24. of May 1610
