I have been using this "textbook" for years. The information that is in this booklet came from doing research over the years on the Pilgrims, something that I have always been interested in. I wanted to put together something that would allow my students to understand what life was life on and off the Mayflower. The topics discussed in this resource allow for many wonderful springboards...
This "book" addresses...
*what the Pilgrims packed to go on the voyage
*what the voyage was like on the way to America
*a cross section of the Mayflower showing where sailors and passengers stayed (not the original ship that was supposed to sail to America)
*what the passengers ate on their trip over
*how children passed their time on the Mayflower
*landing in America and the weeks of searching for the right land
*the first winter in Plymouth
*pilgrim children's chores
*what Pilgrim children did for fun in America
*a "How to Do" Cat's Cradle...a Pilgrim game
*a checkerboard...another Pilgrim game
