The Exploration of South Carolina
Our nation is made up of many different kinds of people who come from all over the world for many different reasons. Some may come for jobs, family, political reasons, or a fresh start somewhere new. In this lesson, students will examine why people coming from England moved to the “New World.” Students will answer specific questions to determine why people wanted to leave what they were familiar with for something that was unknown. Students will also create a display to help persuade those living in England to come to settle in South Carolina.
