So, I got a little ahead of myself! I wanted to share some Pilgrim activities with you. One of my favorite books is Three Young Pilgrims, by Cheryl Harness. It's a little long for reading in one lesson, but is full of information about the Pilgrims' motivation to travel to America, chronicles the lives of three documented siblings aboard the Mayflower, has diagrams galore, and is a touching story about the difficult and deadly trip from England to America. We use the book to make booklets similar to these pictured, and this anchor chart. Although I found the booklets on Pinterest a few years ago, I can't remember who first posted them, so if they're your's, please let me know, and please know that I'm not claiming your work, but wanted to share the ideas, and a great resource for doing them!
We also make Pilgrims and write personal narratives about all that for which we're thankful. They are so stinkin' cute - we use pink colored chalk on their little cheeks to blend in some rosiness, and then spray them with hairspray to "set" the chalk. My kiddos are amazed to see chalk, and even more amazed to see it "set". Their parents love these projects, too! You can click HERE to get your pilgrim collars and hats, as well as our list of facts about the Mayflower for free. Just cut big circles for the Pilgrim faces - I'll get y'all some photos soon - I can't find any of the ones we made last year :(
Happy Turkey Day!
P.S. Friends, I'm still working on learning about Google Docs, and only the first page of each of the above documents shows up, so for now, get those for free at my TPT shop. Sorry!
