This storyboard does not have a description.
A couple hundred British convicts, as the British prisons were overflowing, were sent to Australia on 11 ships to create a Penal colony.
Upon arrival workers were sent straight to work, setting up tents and clearing the land of rocks and trees.
Because of the dry soil it was near impossible to grow crops. The colonists tried the local plants but decided it wasn't a suitable source of food.
The work was extremely hard. The trees were thick and tough and the tools were inadequate for the job.
Because of the harsh environment in the first colony a ship of convicts went to find somewhere to set up a second colony.
They set up a colony America although after a while they were kicked out after protest against the British peoples' unfair laws.
