Building Supervisor They chose a fort this wasn’t a good choice because they couldn’t shoot fire from it I would choose a town because it is larger
What types of activities did the Jamestown settlers who worked spend most of their time doing?
The settlers Fished and Mined for Gold.
Was this a good choice?
No, this was not a good choice.
Which one would you choice and why?
Fishing is fine ,but I would also pick hunting instead of mining for gold because you could get a lot of money by selling fur, so why worry about mining for gold when you can hunt for food ,clothing, and money
In Jamestown only indentured servants and laymen worked.
No! I do not do not approve of this method, I think everyone should work even if you are a gentlemen.
The only difference between servants and gentlemen is that gentlemen have money , and servants do not.

Offer to trade with them .
No it wasn’t a good choice.
I would ignore them so they would never have had anything to do with us .
Where did Jamestown settlers land.
Settlers landed in Bay Marsh-This site lies hidden up a river in marshy wetlands.
Was this a good choice.
No- It should have been Bay Island. This Island has hunting food and sits protected inside a bay.
Which would you choose?
I would choose Bay Marsh because it is hidden up in a river and it has a good fishing place, hunting place, and gold mining.
Two of the things farmers grew were corn and tobacco.
Though tobacco causes cancer, it made a great deal of money.
