This PPT and handout is a game that you can play as a class to introduce Jamestown or Colonial Life. Each slide ask the students questions such as what is their desired job, how often they get sick, and others. After each question slide is a point slide where the students put in the points they earned for their choice. At the end the students add up the number of points to see if they survived Jamestown.
This is a great, fun way to introduce the concept to a class. Attached is a worksheet that you can print off that has the students fill in their chooses and then a writing prompt at the bottom about what they think life might have been like in Jamestown. All products in attachment are editable
