Discovery & Settlement

  • American Heritage Chocolate
    To trace the history of cocoa and chocolate is to embark on a journey, a wonderful excursion through time and space. Few foods have such a rich social and economic history, one that extends from ancient times to modern manufacturing techniques. Cacao trees that produced the beans – ultimately made into chocolate – first grew in tropical regions of the Americas, originating among the Amerindian cultures of Central and South America.
  • Pounds, Pence & Pistareens: The Coins and Currency of Colonial America
    "Pounds, Pence & Pistareens: The Coins and Currency of Colonial America" examines the diverse types of money jingling in the pockets and purses of our colonial ancestors. Interactive on-line exhibit.
  • Smithsonian Source: Colonial America
    This section is intended to supplement the curricula, textbooks, and materials you currently use for lessons on the colonial period. The lesson plans and DBQs are organized by grade level.

  • Smithsonian Source: Native American History

  • The Somerset Case - A Primary Source Activity
    James Somerset ran away from his master, a Virginia businessman named Charles Steuart, while they were in England on business. Less than two months later, Somerset was captured, locked in shackles, and placed on a ship bound for Jamaica where he was to be sold. While he was free, Somerset made contact with British abolitionists. In this lesson, students learn about the legal relationship between Great Britain and her colonies by examining a legal dispute over the institution of slavery.
