Storyboard Text

  • The ship held the settlers, some wanting to explore and others wanting to start a new life in North America.
  • They walked for miles, trying to find the perfect location to settle down. 
  • They soon found a location in VIrginia to settle down in. They named it Jamestown. Everything was going well, children playing, and adults taking care of their responsibilities.
  • Soon everything started to fall apart. The Jamestown colony was under crisis as poor leadership, harsh winters, and lack of food started to kill off the colony. They depended on rats, their leather shoes, and their own dogs to eat so they could survive.
  • Disease also took its toll on Jamestown as it killed off the settlers.
  • They soon were brought tobacco by John Rolfe. Tobacco became a cash crop to the settlers as they exported it to Europe. Jamestown started to become successful even after the "Starving Time" wiped out nearly 80% of the colony.
  • The Jamestown Colony were finally thriving as tobacco saved them and they became the first permanent English settlement in North America as they lived on after their many hardships.
