Product Description
This is a high interest lesson about the struggles Jamestown colonists faced during the winter of 1609-10, known as "the starving time". After receiving background information, students will put themselves in the shoes of a Jamestown colonist during this time and brainstorm ways to survive the winter. They will learn what the colonists resorted to and how the settlement ultimately survived. A link to a 3 minute clip will supplement the lesson and explain how evidence of cannibalism was found in 2012. Finally, students will reflect on what they have learned by writing a letter from the perspective of a Jamestown colonist during the starving time.

Included:
-Teacher instructions
-Introductory reading passage with brainstorming activity
-Reading passage on colonists' actions to survive
-Link to supplemental video
