The legacy of the 13 colonies is an essential building block for elementary social studies students as they develop an understanding of their civic heritage. The Colonial era was a dynamic crucible of politics, human drama, revolution, and resolution, in which the formative principles of American culture and government were born. Here are fact-filled, visually compelling stories of the 13 colonies -- from settlement to statehood -- plus the intriguing, but pivotal story of the thwarted, though valiant, colonial effort at Roanoke. The mysterious disappearance of the Roanoke settlers was never resolved. This mystery of history is sure to engage young readers!

Here's an important and exciting story to add to the traditional Colonial roster. Readers learn about the two attempts by English colonists to establish a settlement on Roanoke Island at the end of the 16th century. The fate of the second group of settlers remains a mystery, but the mystery is kept alive today in a modern-day show that has been running for over 62 summers!
