Poetry Book

Colonists Here, There

By Ruth Kriteman

Colonists here, colonists there

Colonists, colonists, everywhere
Restricted colonists worshiping freely,

Starving colonists harvesting expectantly,

Industrious colonists building busily,

And, faithful colonists governing democratically.


Colonists along the Eastern Seaboard,

Colonists across the Atlantic Ocean,

Colonists on Native hunting grounds

And, colonists near dense forests.


Colonists here, colonists there

Colonists, colonists, everywhere


Colonists! Colonists! Colonists!

Native American Bugaloo

Adapted by Ruth and Ben Kriteman

W

e’re Native Americans and here to say,



We were here first, making our way.

We’ve lived upon this land for thousands of years

Don’t make us move, that’s what we fear.

Iroquois, Mohican, Algonquin too

Doing the Native American Bugaloo

We trap clams and crabs, and fish from the sea

Gather nuts and berries , they’re sweet you see

We harvest crops. Corn and beans from the land

We even hunt deer with a strong hand.

Hunters, farmers, fishermen too

Doing the Native American Bugaloo

Our native language lets us speak and trade

We stay safe and warm in houses we made

The Settlers need to learn new ways

Treat us with respect or we’ll send you to your grave .

Trade, treaties, promises, too

Doing the Native American Bugaloo

European explorers brought epidemics galore

Measles, small pox, plagues and more

Millions of Native people lost their lives

So many troubles make it hard to survive.

Diseases, sickness, sadness. too

Doing the Native American Bugaloo

COLONIST’S CADENCE

A new life that’s as good as gold,

Travel by ship from far away,

Build a colony that’s here to stay!

Sound off –Puritans

Sound off –settlements

Sound off – 1, 2, 3,4, Colonies!

Representative government for me and you,

Learning from Native people and their tribes,

Praying that this new world will provide.

Sound off – tyranny

Sound off – limitations

Sound off – 1, 2 3, 4, Colonies!

Develop colonies for new life,

Working together to end the strife,

Value, honesty, hard work too,

Wait to see what we can do!

Sound off – community

Sound off – freedom

Sound off—colonies, THAT’S US!

Written by: Frey, Hammer, Lindholm. Adapted by Ruth Kriteman

In the time of the first planting of corn

There will come a tribe from the bay of the Chesapeake.

This tribe will build their longhouses on the land of the Powhatan.

Three times the Powhatan will rise up against this tribe.

The first battle will end and the Powhatan will be victorious.

But the tribe will grow strong again.

The Powhatan will rise up.

The second battle will end and the Powhatan will be victorious.

But the tribe will be long and filled with bloodshed.

By the end of this battle, the Powhatan kingdom will be no more.



Prophecy delivered to Chief Powhatan, ruler of the Powhatan empire, by his trusted priests, sometime before the Christian year 1607

Plymouth Colony Expert Group Name _________________________________

Description:

In the early 1600s a group of people from England disagreed with King Henry VIII’s new laws about religion. Instead of agreeing to attend the Church of England, they chose to become pilgrims; people who set out on a journey to foreign lands. After living for a time in Holland, they sailed to North America with a charter, a document giving them the right to establish a colony. There they would have religious freedom; the right to worship the way they wanted to worship. The Pilgrims arrived on board the Mayflower in 1620.

They landed at a site called Plymouth. The area had hilly fields, fresh water rivers and access to deep forests.

Economy

Plymouth Colony was close to the coast. Ships were anchored in the harbor. Rope making and shipbuilding were important activities. There was good trade in furs and fish. The land around the Colony was rocky, which made farming difficult. The winters were long and cold. The growing season was short. The Pilgrims could only grow enough to feed the Colony.



People

The Pilgrims founded Plymouth Colony. They belonged to group called the Separatists, because they wanted to separate completely from the Church of England.

The best-known Native American tribes were the Wampanoag and Pawtuxet tribes. The first Indian to help the Pilgrims was Samoset, a member of the Wampanoag tribe. He introduced the Pilgrims to his chief, Chief Massasoit. Their relationship was good and allowed for peace for many years. Another man, Squanto, of the Pawtuxet tribe, helped the Pilgrims by teaching them to plant vegetables like corn and squash.

D

ifficulties

The Mayflower landed in November of 1620. The weather was already turning very cold and snowy. The Pilgrims did not have enough time to plant crops or build sturdy homes to withstand the cold winter. Many Pilgrims died from starvation and cold. The rocky soil made growing crops more difficult.

Events and Documents

The Native People taught the Pilgrims ways to survive. To give thanks for their new success, the Pilgrims invited members of neighboring tribes to a dinner and celebration. This was the first Thanksgiving. It was first celebrated in 1621.

The Pilgrims knew that they needed some kind of government that would organize and structure their lives. While still on board the Mayflower, the men wrote and signed the Mayflower Compact, a document that established rules and procedures for the colony to be self-governing, not dependent on the laws of King Henry VIII in England.

The Northern Colonies Name: _________________________

Description

Between 1630 and 1640 another religious group, called the Puritans, arrived in North America. They wanted a colony for themselves where they could live and pray according to their beliefs. The Puritans established the Massachusetts Bay Colony as a commonwealth, a community in which people work together for the common good of all. As the commonwealth grew, new colonies were established. These new colonies became the New Hampshire Colony, the Rhode Island Colony and the Connecticut Colony.

The Puritans experienced long, cold winters and a short growing season. There were dense forests to the west and the Atlantic Ocean to the east.

E

conomy

The Puritans arrived in North America well prepared for establishing a new colony. They did not suffer through a starving time. The Puritans quickly established an industry in shipbuilding that would provide merchant ships that would travel between Europe and North America. Those ships were used for whaling. Whales were hunted for their blubber, or fat. The blubber was turned into oil for wicker lamps. The ships also allowed for large-scale fishing to feed the colonists and for trade. Trading between colonies and with the countries in Europe was the most important economic activity in the Northern Colonies.

P

eople

The Puritans were a stern people. Only male church members could vote for members of their government. Their first governor was John Winthrop.

Their church sermons emphasized duty, godliness, hard work and honesty. They believed that they could do whatever was needed to establish and expand their colony, including taking the land away from the Native people.

Over time, some people disagreed with the Puritans’ restrictive rules and were forced out, like Roger Williams and Anne Hutchinson. They moved to Rhode Island.

Difficulties

T

he Puritans dominated the religious, social and political life. They were not at all tolerant of other beliefs or traditions. As a result, people of other religions or beliefs grew tired of living under the stern and restrictive rules the Puritans lived by. Many, like Roger Williams and Anne Hutchinson left Massachusetts and moved to other colonies.



Events and Documents

The Puritans arrival in North America was part of The Great Migration. This was when many people left Europe in search of religious freedom and economic opportunity.

In 1636, a Puritan congregation established the Connecticut Colony and wrote and adopted the Fundamental Orders of Connecticut. This document allowed non-church members the right to vote. It also limited the power of the governor and expanded the idea of a representative government. The Fundamental Orders of Connecticut was North America’s first written constitution.

In 1651, The Navigation Acts were written and adopted. It regulated colonial trade and allowed England to collect taxes on goods and products being traded in North America.



The Middle Colonies Name: ____________________

Description

The Middle Colonies consist of the Delaware, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania Colonies.

They are located south of New England where the winters are mild and the growing season is long. The

land in this region also contained iron ore. Europeans arrived in this area in search of religious freedom.




Economy

Agriculture was a very important aspect of the economy of the Middle Colonies. It was much

easier to acquire smaller tracts of land, so many colonists grew wheat, corn and other crops to feed the

growing population. It soon became known as the ‘bread basket’ of the 13 colonies.

The iron ore allowed the Middle Colonies to serve as the ‘iron works’ of the region. Nails, tools

and wheels were made and traded with other colonies and with European cities. Shipbuilding, lumber

and textiles were also important features of the economy of the area. Trade in crops and other industry

made this region the wealthiest of the 13 colonies.



P

eople

The Middle Colonies were the most ethnically diverse of the 13 colonies. People from Holland,

Sweden, France and Germany came to this area in search of religious freedom. As a result, many

religions were represented here. Jewish, Protestant and Catholic settlers arrived. The Dutch first settled

the area that is now the state of New York. They brought the first African slaves to North America.

William Penn was an important land-owner in North America. He was born in England and joined

a religious group known as the Quakers. When William Penn was given a large piece of land in North

America, he established a colony where Quakers could live according to their beliefs. That colony was

c

alled Pennsylvania.
