This 30 minute program will introduce your students to a different primary source, through a guided inquiry process. The students will engage in primary source analysis and interpret the importance of the primary source, and place it into historical context. The source will be aligned to both the Virginia and national standards, and will also be paired with replica artifacts to help further illuminate the meaning. This interactive program will end with a period for questions and answers.
JOHN SMITH'S MAP OF vIRGINIA
Maps gained in importance during the Age of Exploration. European explorers needed maps to follow and created their own as they explored new lands. Some maps became so important that they were copied over and over again. These map copies, or derivatives, were especially useful to travelers and explorers to the New World. John Smith’s map of Virginia was one of these influential maps, because of the importance of the Virginia settlement and the accuracy with which Smith conducted his work.
