Jamestown Arrives on Water Street!

We have been learning about Jamestown, Virginia and the 13 colonies in America. We have been working on structures and this was our chance to see how their homes were really built! We created scale models of dwellings like wigwams and long houses…we made them out of live sticks and twigs from our yard so they could bend into a curved shape for the right fashionable look. We made the animal skin look from grayish brown felt and cloth. We used Calico Critters in our Jamestown to show the Native Americans and the English settlers. Accessories needed!!! We had to get some furniture in there. We have lanterns and benches, hay bales, fires and an actual Plymouth Rock! Our Jamestown is pretty rockin’ awesome!!!!!
