Come to my Colony!

5th graders, you've been investigating the successes and failures of English colonists at four different colonies: Jamestown, Plymouth, Popham and Roanoke.  Now it's time to imagine that you are setting off for one of these colonies and need to rally other people to join you.

Can you convince other English people to leave their homes and set off for an adventure of a lifetime?  What specifically about your colony makes it a good risk for colonists?

We will use Explora and NearPod to gather and share our information.  

Learning Targets:

I can use access Explora through the MARVEL database.
I can draw evidence from informational texts to support research, analysis, reflection and collaboration.
I can use information to make a persuasive and compelling argument.
