Help your students wrap their heads around the 17th century and the first Thanksgiving, by sharing my photographs of . . .
* The Mayflower II, an exact representation of the original ship,
* Plymouth Rock,
* Plimoth Plantation and a
* Wampanoag village.
I took them on a recent trip to Massachusetts. If you’re ever visiting out east, I highly recommend a stop at these historic places.
Using the photographs to explain things, makes this time period more real, working on activities more meaningful, and students’ writing prompts more vivid and factual.
