This interactive activity, from History Globe, allows students to experience life in the early American colony of Jamestown. Using the London Company's instructions to guide them, students make decisions including where to land, how to handle relations with the native Powhatan Indians, what type of settlement to build, and more. They can compare their hypothetical colonies to the historical Jamestown at the end.
