 Early Trades at Jamestown
Teaching Strategy

The goal of the Virginia Company was to turn North America's natural resources into products that could be exported to England. Early attempts at establishing industry included silk making, glassblowing, wine making, and iron and salt production. Ultimately, what proved most successful in Virginia was tobacco and the fur trade. In this lesson, students examine images related to early manufacturing in Jamestown, looking for the connections among the objects and their relation to the settlement. More
