Edexcel 9-1 GCSE Early Elizabethan England : Lesson 18 Why did attempts to colonise Virginia fail?

Edexcel 9-1 GCSE Early Elizabethan England : Lesson 18 Why did attempts to colonise Virginia fail?

Students learn about the two failed attempts to colonise Virginia. They analyse the decisions made on each voyage and critics these before creating a guide book for people wanting to undertake a successful voyage to the New World. This sets them to answer the lesson's question (a 16 mark exam question). There is also a homework activity. As always there are step by step instruction, high-quality differentiated resources and exam support. This lesson concludes the Unit of Work. I'll be uploading exam support material during the Christmas holiday so keep your eyes on my page for details.
