This is a fun and thought provoking activity which allows students to utilize a modified copy of the laws implemented in Jamestown in 1610 by Lord del la Warr, Students read aloud the worksheet titled Martial Law at Jamestown 1610 and discuss the laws and the consequences that were imposed on the colonists. The focus question: How do these laws differ from the laws we have today? Each group will design a cause-effect (law/consequence) poster on butcher paper. Students will present their posters to the class, followed by a class discussion on the results of martial law on the Jamestown people.
