This Provisions for Carolina: Comparing Lists lesson plan also includes:
What would you take? Class members examine two recommended provisions lists: one for colonists traveling to Virginia in 1622, and a second for persons immigrating to Carolina in 1709. Groups are asked to note the similarities and differences in the two primary source documents and make inferences about what had changed over the 80-year period. Building on their deductions, individuals then craft a "day-in-the-life" diary entry in the voice of a colonist. Complete directions for the activity, links to the documents, and assessment suggestions are included in the detailed packet.
