PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The skit introduces students to the key concept of colonization in America and helps to facilitate student’s understanding of the reasons the Queen of England agreed to allow the colonists to settle in America. The second activity tells the sad story of the Roanoke colonists. Students work in cooperative groups having the opportunity to draw conclusions and make inferences about the demise of the colonists. This activity is rigorous and students would benefit from using highlighters or marginalia when reading. A third activity allows students to create a cartoon depicting White's arrival, and his assumptions as to what may have happened to the colonists. In addition, a short exit pass of 8 questions is included. This activity has been successfully used with fourth through sixth graders.
