These 14 writing prompts have been created to give students opportunities to analyze photos, drawings, and artwork depicting the culture of the Powhatan Indians and then write their responses to the prompts. These prompts are great for daily interactive notebooks or journaling. These can also be used for warm-ups or exit passes after initial content has been presented. Incorporating writing prompts into your history lessons helps students use higher level thinking skills to make predictions, inferences, draw conclusions about the past, as well as compare life today to that in Colonial times.
