2 Reflect on “Why We Remember”. On a sheet of paper, make a personal connection to the text. Tell me what this paragraph made you think about. Why is what we are about to learn important? It is the very beginning of the country in which we live with many luxuries and freedoms. This is one reason we celebrate Thanksgiving every year.

3 Read pages 156 – 157 Why did the English & Spanish want colonies in America? To find gold and other natural resources. What is a resource? The resources they were looking for were probably natural resources. A natural resource is a material source of wealth, such as timber (or wood), fresh water, or a mineral deposit that occurs in a natural state and has economic value.

7 Who was Sir Walter Raleigh? Raleigh was a wealthy friend of the Queen of England, who gave him permission to start a colony in North America. Twice he tried to start a colony in North Carolina, but failed.

8 Why did Raleigh’s first colony fail? The colonist did not plant enough crops to support the colony. The Indians nearby got tired of providing the colonist with food. The colonist began to starve and a ship from England picked up the survivors.

9 What happened to the second colony? England became involved in a war with Spain and sent no ships to check on the colony for 3 years. When ships finally did arrive, there was no sign of life in the colony. The only clue was the word “CROATOAN” carved into a tree.
