What ever happened to the colonists who settled in Roanoke, North Carolina so long ago? If you ask the students in Ms. Williams & Ms. Gietzen’s classes you may be surprised by the answer! The students were tasked with solving the historical mystery and retelling the story in their own words. Using the App “Scribble My Story”, the students retold the treacherous tale of John White and the early colonists using their own words and pictures. John White, the leader of the colony was sent back to England for supplies. When he returned from Europe, his entire colony was gone!
