Blood on the River James Town 1607
Students are excited about reading Blood on the River. We will be reading this together in class. We are using this novel to read and learn about the new settlement established in Jamestown and life in Colonial America during the 1600's. This historical fiction novel incorporates primary sources at the beginning of each chapter.
Primary and Secondary Sources
Over the last week we've been learning about primary and secondary sources and how these are used to help us to learn and study history. Students should be familiar with the differences between primary and secondary sources and should be able to identify several examples of each type of source.
