We did a Raft (Role, audience, format, and topic) on Sir Walter Raleigh, John White, or Virginia Dare. I choose John White. We did the format of a Journal entry.

My good friend Sir Walter Raleigh has asked me if I wanted to be captain of the colony Roanoke. Now I am Captain John White of Roanoke. Walter Raleigh did not choose fit men the first time, but I will choose fit farmers, hunters, and other skilled men. I thought it over and I will bring 100 men with me to Roanoke. I wish that no one will get hurt and nothing bad is going to happen.

We are running low on supplies at Roanoke. I fear going back to England because Walter Raleigh might get mad, but I have to go anyway. I am leaving later today after I tell the people of Roanoke that I am leaving.

I have just landed back in Roanoke again after 3 years of waiting for the war to end in England. I am looking for the settlers, and I have found a fence post and I see that someone has carved the word CROATOAN in the post. I hope that my friends and other settlers are not injured. I should start looking immediately but the weather is poor, I cannot look now. I hope they are alright.
