Jamestown Unit Study




Learn all about one of the first European settlements in North America- Jamestown, Virginia. You’ll be learning about the voyage, life in the settlement, the Native American tribes, John Smith and Pocahontas.  This guide brings history to life through fun books, projects, recipes, and more! Great for elementary grades (ages 5-10.)

This is a 4-week unit study using 2 books: You Wouldn’t Want to be an American Colonist! by Jacqueline Morley and The Settling of Jamestown (Events That Shaped America) by Marylee Knowlton or Janet Riehecky. Required books can be found on Amazon or on secondhand websites- search titles on bookfinder.com or thriftbooks.com.

Included in this unit is an additional book list, supply list, weekly guide, and multiple activity instructions (with photo examples) and recipes. The weekly guide is broken into 3-4 short, open & go lessons but can easily be joined together or moved around to fit into your schedule. The lessons guide you on what to read, videos to watch, projects or recipe suggestions, map labeling, and prompts to fill in narration notebook pages.

Some projects included in this guide: build a diorama of the Jamestown settlement, colonial games and recipes, Native American games & weaving, and more!

Guide is 24 pages.

Grab the full early American history curriculum and continue the exploration of America with the Vikings, Christopher Columbus, and the Mayflower in Adventures to the New World.
