In this 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. Just follow the included instructions for how to access the Google version, then share the resource through Google or assign via Google Classroom. This will allow students to type directly into document!
At the end of the investigation, students look at recent evidence that was uncovered in May, 2012. Students analyze the evidence to draw new conclusions on the whereabouts of the Lost Colony!
Students complete a short writing assignment about what they believe happened, and compile a picture book (or graphic novel) that recounts all of the possibilities! Student directions and rubric are included!
** A key with student answer suggestions is included!
