Lesson 1 - History/Culture

Just before the first Thanksgiving, conditions were very hard in America for the European settlers. One of the reasons that the Pilgrims were so happy to have food and to have happy relationships with the Native Americans is because life in America was hard in the early 1600s. 

Jamestown, VA, was one place where life was very hard for European settles. 

To learn more about Jamestown, we'll watch this video: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0874140/

Students will keep track of what they learn on the worksheet that's attached below.
