The Jamestown Colony was the first colony ever founded, located in Virginia. The first people to arrive were all men, including John Smith and people known as "gentlemen." At least a century later, the thirteen colonies were founded.
We shall set sail for the New World! We will form the Jamestown Colony, after our great King James!
Thrteen colonies were formed in the New World, known as America. These were divided into three groups: New England Colonies, Middle Colonies, and Southern Colonies. In the Northern Colonies, farming was difficult, because of the cold weather. So people made a living by fishing and hunting whales. In the Middle Colonies, business was widespread and factories produced goods people used everyday. Also, the climate was better, so wheat and other grains were farmed. In the Southern Colonies, the climate was warm, so large plantations were owned by plantation owners, which produced crops of every kind. Most people were happy in the colonies, being able to lead their own lives.
But not all people lived a happy life in the thirteen colonies. Not all people came to America of choice. Some people were captured and shipped from Africa to become slaves for plantation owners in the Southern Colonies. They were treated unjustly and often beaten by their owners, who thought of them lower than humans.
