Jamestown, Virginia celebrated it’s 400-year anniversary this past weekend with a three-day festival remembering the first English colony established in what became the United States of America. Bring Jamestown’s history into your classroom with National Geographic’s kids game–On the Trail of Captain John Smith: A Jamestown Adventure. Follow Captain John Smith as he meets the Native Americans who inhabit the area, explores the Chesapeake Bay, and helps to ensure the establishment of the colony. Also, try your hand at shooting a bow and arrow, sword-fishing, boat racing, and much more!
