Product Description

Voyage to The Lost Colony of Roanoke with your class! Build background knowledge in ESL or ELA class or give your ELLs something exciting to do in Social Studies!

Product Description

Beginner English language learners are crying out for stimulating texts to develop their reading and language skills. These texts are hard to find. 

This story is part of a collection of high interest material specifically designed for ENL, ELL and ESL students. It is short enough for beginners (at a two page reading) yet contains meaningful content and exciting activities that are sure to provoke discussion.

This Article
It starts with a mystery -- what happened to the colonists. Then it describes how the Roanoke colony was founded and why John White needed to leave his family behind to leave for England. It ends with the famous perplexing clue left on the tree and asks students to inference what could have happened.

It contains images by John White, allowing you to teach primary and secondary sources.

You get:

  • A five page base handout for students (not including additional graphic organizers and activities).
  • Activities based on the reading, including multiple choice, drawing pictures, sentence writing, skits, timelines.
  • Ideas for teachers — what to do before reading, during reading and after reading, including suggested aims.
  • Two graphic organizers for retelling the story as a comic.
  • A portrait frame graphic organizer (to teach people from history) with text detail boxes.
  • A t-chart graphic organizer.
  • A setting film strip to teach setting.
  • A timeline graphic organizer.
  • Answer keys and rubrics.

Further details:
Social Studies = Colonization, Roanoke Colony, Primary/Secondary source

Grammar = To be, past tense, sequencing
ELA = Nonfiction
Grades = 6+
ENL Level = Beginner (plus)
Estimated length = At least two hours. My students took a week, without doing all of the extra activities.

All graphic organizers can be reused for any text, as they are intentionally not text specific. They make a great addition to your teaching resources.


Answer key and rubrics included.
