Most history students will learn of Captain John Smith and Pocahontas, of the early farming of tobacco, and of the first African slaves in this country. All of these things center around the colony of Jamestown, Virginia. Jamestown was the first permanent English settlement in America, founded in 1607.

The cross-curricular song is set in a style reminiscent of early America. It's a story song with a repeating chorus. The lyrics give a very broad overview of the story of Jamestown, which will hopefully encourage further discussion.

To further help with the study of Jamestown, the kit provides a reproducible student report. The kit also includes a rehearsal track for part 2, as well as the extracted recorder part. (from Music K-8, Vol. 17, No. 4)
