1. Suppose you are new to this country, are alone and have no money, very few skills of any kind, but you have a burning desire to make a new life for yourself. How would you go about finding a place to live, a way to make a living, clothes, food, etc.?
Student answers will vary.
2. Imagine what it would have been like for the early settlers of Georgia as they set foot for the first time in this new world. List all the things they would have to bring with them and what they would have to know (or learn) how to do in order to live in the wilderness and off the land.
Student answers will vary, but they will likely include some of the following information. Early settlers would likely bring tools and supplies that would help them harvest crops, hunt, chop wood, build shelter, and cook. Settlers from England would have to adjust to Georgia's warm, humid climate and learn which crops would thrive in its soil and weather.
