This is Noah! He wonders what happened to the people back in early Jamestown.
What's this ?
Uh oh! I pressed a button on accident. Why is the room changing?
Year 1612 Jamestown
Where am I? It looks like old Jamestown!
Who might you be, young sir?
My name is John Smith. Are you Priest Robert? I was wondering, how do the natives and the English interact ?
I can't tell him my name,it will affect time.
Ah, so your name is John Smith! Nice to meet you.
So it was true. John Smith was the one who cause the fight. I knew it!
Ah,its very interesting. When we first landed the Natives offered to help. But someone with a familiar name, like yours, got off on the wrong foot and then we started to fight.
No, but i will keep that in mind. I will read up them later. Now, can we go somewhere I won't get rained on even more.
Have you ever heard of Lord Baltimore, John Peter Zenger, Nathaniel Bacon, and Jonathan Edwards ?
Thank you, now we can dry off. I Have another question for you. What are the economic products here in Jamestown ?
Well, let's see. The tobacco that we grow has became the outlook of Jamestown. Everyone in the colonies wants to grow it. It is being grown on the streets of Jamestown and has required more people to come to Jamestown to work.
So in 5 years we will have grown 20,000 pounds of tobacco in Jamestown.
I still don't get it . Why do the natives hate you guys?
Well, to them we are evil in a way. I also think it was because when John Smith arrived he declared their land now belongs to the English.
Why don't we go to sleep. We have work to do at the church tomorrow and I could always use extra help.
Wow! Priest Robert has answered so many questions. Now, how will I ever get back home? Ill sleep on it.
Huh! Im back! I wonder how I got back? What year does the computer say? 2018! Yes, I'm back!
Home sweet home! 1612 is not a time I would want to have lived in. I need to get some rest. I have school tomorrow!
The social classes in Jamestown.
Student's, can anyone tell me about the social classes in Jamestown?
The social classes were set into groups.Enslaved Field Hands- They would usually be africans being brought to America to work in the tobacco fields. Enslaved house servants-they would be slaves that would be cook and more house workers but people called them better of than field slaves.
For farmers- They normally owned a small piece of land and the family was usually 3 people, a father,mother, and son. Middling was just a name for a group of people who had a larger power in the society. The gentry were the "upper crust". They had large amounts of land and were very wealthy. They had many slaves the right to govern others. That's all of them.
Good Job Noah
Also they had to worry about the seasons because since they aren't used to them or didn't know them they had trouble with getting food.
