5th graders, we are about to embark upon an adventure!
You know how people go on quests in fantasy books? Well, we are going to go on a quest of our own to discover just why the Popham Colony, right here in your back yard, did not go on to have the fame and success of the Jamestown Colony. Just think, if Popham Colony had succeeded, our little town of Phippsburg would be hugely famous and people would come and visit from all over the world. For some reason, though, it didn't work out for those intrepid explorers. Why? That is the question you will answer as you yourself become an intrepid explorer and venture forth on our Popham Webquest. Good luck!
