What information could you have provided to early American colonists to help them survive?
The “First Thanksgiving” in 1621 celebrated the pilgrims' first harvest. Help students better understand the celebration by having them explore the challenges and difficulties faced by the early American colonists when settling in the “New World.”
For this project the students will learn the dates, times and reasons for Colonial American settlement and the basic geography of the Eastern United States seaboard. The students will also understand that the early settlers of the United States faced many challenges including harsh landscape, limited understanding of resources and lack of knowledge of surroundings and limited survival skills. The students will write a book with multiple chapters in small teams to provide detailed instruction for survival to Early American Colonists.
