Yesterday we visited this site and took a tour of the Mayflower and watched it's journey. This was a great interactive tool for the children to learn how the Pilgrims got to America.
Here are some pictures:
|We learned that on September 6, 1620 they left England for North America. After 65 days on sea they reached Cape Cod, Massachusetts on November 11. By December they made their way to Plymouth.|
|We took a tour of the ship. We learned The Rigging, the Fo'c'sle, 'Tween Decks, Hold, Steerage, the Green Cabin, and the Round House.|
Then we made our own Mayflower.
