About this Alphabet
This is an entirely unique photographic alphabet which is ideal for anyone teaching colonial or early American history. All photographs contained in this alphabet were taken personally by Cori Beckett in July 2012 while attending the Colonial Williamsburg Teacher Institute. Each photograph was found occurring in the environment (nothing was contrived) of either Jamestown, Colonial Williamsburg, or Yorktown historical sights. This alphabet can easily serve as realia while adding a little artistic flair to the classroom.
Example of Historical Significance & Realia Links:
The letter “Q” is a hoop & stick game commonly played by children of the colonial period.
The letter “T” is the grave marker for Bartholomew Gosnold, an original settler from Jamestown.
The letter "D" is an oxen yolk
The letter "W" is replica rigging from the colonial ship "Discovery"
The letter "M" is from the window of the Jamestown church - the oldest known building in the USA.
And the list goes on...
An index of photographs is included with this resource.
