Jamestown Changes [Lesson Plan].
In this lesson, students study census data showing the names and occupations of early settlers of the English settlement at Jamestown, Virginia, to discern how life changed in the Jamestown settlement in the first few years after it was founded. Learning objectives of the lesson plan are: (1) to gain experience gathering information from primary sources; (2) to examine changes over time in conditions at Jamestown as revealed in primary documents from early years in the colony; and (3) to organize a statement of findings. The lesson plan also contains the subject areas covered in the lesson, time required to complete the lesson, the skills used in the lesson, the grade level (grades 3-5), and lists of the standards developed by professional or government associations that are related to the lesson, as well as activities to extend the lesson.
