Product Description
OBJECTIVE:
To become familiar with some of the problems and dangers faced by settlers crossing the Atlantic Ocean during the 1600s.

TIME:
1 and 1/2 class periods

Begin by reading with the class the story about what it was like for people in Europe to cross the Atlantic Ocean and settle in America during the 1600s.

Afterwards, students will do a writing assignment where they pretend they were on one of the ships that crossed the Atlantic at that time. Each class member will explain what it was like to cross the ocean on a crowded ship that included their family and 100 other settlers from England.

The students' stories should be 150 words or more and include some of the things that were mentioned in the background information in the first five paragraphs that were read at the beginning of this lesson. A list of some other guidelines is also given to help students write their stories, such as their reason for leaving England, and what did their family do during its first year in America.
