Loving and kind father and mother:
3rd April, 1623
After watching some of the Colonial House episodes, how does the letter above compare to what you saw on the video? Was the colony in the video realistic?
Imagine you have been selected to participate in Colonial House 2. Write a letter home talking about your living conditions. Are you a freeman, indentured servant, or even the Governor? What kinds of things do you do day by day? Are you having trouble keeping the rules? Is the life you are experiencing similar to the writer of the letter?
Use Paint to draw a picture of your colony and include it in your post. Make sure you save your picture as a JPeg so it will upload properly. Here is a link to a virtual tour of Jamestown.
