In this hands-on and engaging Lost Colony CSI investigation, students work individually or in groups to examine possible theories that explain the fate of the Lost Colony at Roanoke. Students will read through 6 possible scenarios, analyzing a variety of questions from a variety of disciplines in an attempt to uncover what truly happened to the Lost Colonists. Students will answer and analyze questions from each scenario, then each student will complete a picture book or graphic novel that compiles the different schools of thoughts (and what they feel is the likeliest explanation).
This resource includes a paper in-class version and a 1:1 Google compatible version to be used in conjunction with Google Classroom.
