In Fifth Grade Social Studies we are learning about the Colonial period. We learned about Primary Sources, a first hand account, and how they can be used. In Social Studies we did a lot of projects about what and why we would and should bring to the New World. We learned about Jamestown and how they met the Native Americans. We also learned about the Starving Time. The Starving Time is when the Natives stopped growing corn and couldn’t feed the settlers. We started learning about what we wanted to learn individually. I hope to learn much more about the Colonial Period!
