PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Incorporate authentic learning into your classroom by having your students complete this project as you teach Virginia Studies SOLs VS.3. The project is organized around the question: How can you as an experienced Jamestown settler create a survival guide for a new settler arriving in the early 1600s?

Students will analyze the many hardships and reasons for death in early Jamestown, categorize the different types of hardships, and create a survival guide for new settlers arriving in Jamestown. They will not only practice Virginia Studies content, but also reading and writing nonfiction skills, and research skills. Throughout the learning process, their project will help drive your instruction. There are also opportunities throughout for teaching social skills and 21st century skills through different types of sharing, giving and receiving feedback, and being flexible with plans.

This project can easily be differentiated for your classroom needs. It can be assigned as an enrichment project for early finishers/advanced learners or as a whole class project.
