Roanoke: The Lost Colony
Audience: 2nd Grade - 4th Grade
In 1587, a group of brave English men, women, and children set off to make a new colony in America. This was the first attempt by families, not soldiers, to tame the new world. The colonists were ill-prepared to settle the wild land. They didn't have enough supplies to build the houses, or grow the crops they would need. It was decided that John White would return to England to gather everything they would need to make their colony successful. Unfortunately, on the way back to America, John's ship was attacked, and the supplies were stolen. He was not able to return to Roanoke until 1590. Upon his arrival, he was dismayed to find the colony deserted. No one knows what happened to the people left in Roanoke which is a mystery from history.
