    They could have had severe weather.

  2. Q says:

    The colonists ran out of food. So they sent people back to England to get food.It took the people 3 years to go to England,get food,and to go banck to the New World.When they were gone people starved and died.When the people came back there were no people.

  3. Miss Cacace says:

    What kind of weather do you think?

  4. Miss Cacace says:

    Yes, but many different things could have happened to the people who stayed behind. We assume that they starved . . .

  5. C says:

    i think they were attacked by the Native Americans but some escaped and were never found and died.

  6. Miss Cacace says:

    Interesting, this is a great idea. Why do you think the people who escaped would not survive on their own? Give a few examples!

  7. k says:

    I really think that they ran out of food and they all past away.

  8. Miss Cacace says:

    Just like that? Do you think they tried to possibly steal food from the Native Americans? I mean if you were starving with nothing and the fear of death loomed over you, you might do crazy things!

    I think what happened was that the people who lived there ran out of food or there was a terible storm or they could of left because they had no food or crops to grow so they decided to go back to England.What else could have happened is that the Indians got mad at them for taking there food.

    I think they tried to get food from the Native Anericans, but they failed each time.The Native Americans might have not liked what they did so they attacked the colonist.

  11. Miss Cacace says:

    Do you think they would be strong enough to build a boat to take them back to England? Maybe they had tried to leave and their ship sunk?

  12. Miss Cacace says:

    A very interesting possibility. How do you think they would have convinced the Native Americans to give them food?

  13. T says:

    I think that they starved while the few people went on the boat to go back to England to get more food. So while the others were taking the trip back to England the other people tried to servive but couldn’t make it so they died.

  14. Miss Cacace says:

    T – Possibly, possibly. This is a well educated guess.

  15. o says:

    I think that they couldn’t grow any food because they didn’t have good growing land.

  16. o says:

    I think it could of been really stormy.

  17. B says:

    I also think while the few people went on the boat the others tried to survive but they couldn’t so they died.

  18. B says:

    I think they would have convinced the Native Americans by sharing the Tabbaco.

  19. B says:

    C,what do you mean by severe weather?

  20. B says:

    I think what happened is they didn’t have the proper supplies and they also didn’t know what was out here so they weren’t able to survive out here.
