Product Description
It took twenty years after the failure of Roanoke for England to try again to plant a colony in the New World to challenge Spain’s hegemony. Interestingly, it would be a business venture – the Virginia Company of London – that would finally succeed in gaining a foothold on the North American mainland. Despite pour planning, incompetent leadership, disease, starvation, and war, Jamestown would not only hold on to survive but eventually succeed, paving the way for English settlement of the entire eastern seaboard.

This text tells the story of the early years of that struggle, culminating in the colony’s conquest of the local natives and the permanent establishment of English presence in Virginia. It is divided into four chapters “Brave New World," "Jamestown Survives," “Did Pocahontas Save John Smith,” and "Offending the Naturals" from my textbook “We Take Nothing by Conquest”.

These chapters are also included in a complete and comprehensive unit on Jamestown, Plymouth, and the 13 Colonies, as well as part of a complete mini-unit solely on Jamestown. These units include not only this text but also inquiry based study guides, PowerPoints, activities, assessments and projects designed to accompany the text, along with a Teacher’s Guide for using all of the materials
