Storyboard Text

  • Mia McCloskey P.8 The Geographic, Economic, Political, and Social elements of the Plymouth Colony.
  • Fishing and whaling were a main source of money in Plymouth's economy.  They used almost every part of the whale and one way they used it was putting whale and fish oil in barrels with meats to preserve them.
  • The colony of Plymouth created a government that they called, the Mayflower Compact.  This gave the colonist the opportunity to vote for decisions that had to do with the colony.
  • Put it to a vote!
  • We should do this instead!
  • But what about this?
  • The colony of Plymouth had a mainly sea based economy due to the fact that their soil was very rocky and bad for farming. If their soil and climate was normal, they could have planted tobacco or other cash crops such as Jamestown did.
  • Many people moved to Plymouth for religious freedom because once England broke away from the Roman Catholic  Church, some people still agreed with the Roman Catholic Church.
  • Your beloved church (unless you are a witch)
  • Compare and contrast the social, geographical, political, and economical aspects of Jamestown and Plymouth. 
  • Economic- Jamestown made its money off of cash crops such as tobacco while Plymouth made their money off of fishing and whaling. Political- Jamestown and Plymouth both had types of Representitive Governments but Plymouth really expressed it when they made a contract called the Mayflower Compact. Geographical- Jamestown had fertile soil which allowed for crops such as tobacco to be grown while Plymouths soil was rocky.  Social- The colony of Jamestown was laid back in their religious ways which was the exact opposite of Plymouth who even went through the Salem Witch Trials to find people who didn't obey God and would hang people who didn't obey the teachings of the church.
