The students can paint the plates, and add different shaped paper cut outs to the popsicle sticks for sails. A teacher can make "suit cases" out of filing folders and have children use one side the top to write down the items that they would bring with them on the Mayflower.
The children could use the other side bottom to draw pictures of what they wrote. Nov 16, Kimberlee Gutterman rated it really liked it Shelves: historical-fiction. The illustration style in this book seemed very plain and boring to me. However, the text was very interesting and kept me wanting to read more.

He loved it and requested every night despite more fun rhyming turkey-centered silly books we had. More importantly, he absorbed it, acted it out, drew his own pictures of the first Thanksgiving, etc. It reinforced what he was learning at school and added a bit more so I am very pleased with it.

Since presidents, political figures, and others have shaped the public narrative around Thanksgiving, but there are voices and stories not commonly heard by many Americans — those of Native people. The early s brought newcomers who had left their home in England to Wampanoag territory. After anchoring and going ashore near Nauset now Cape Cod in November , a nine-year-old Pilgrim boy became separated from the group.
The Wampanoag people cared for him for several weeks before returning him to the Pilgrims.
The Mayflower Story
The common interest in this child fostered a feeling of compassion for the Pilgrims in our tribal leadership, who agreed that the Wampanoag would feed and protect the Pilgrims. The Pilgrims, in turn, agreed to remain on the land in a peaceful and respectful way. This treaty was the first made between a tribal nation and the Pilgrims. The following fall, Wampanoag residents observed Pilgrim men leave their village with weapons. They were concerned that the Pilgrims were making plans for war. Within a few days, 92 Wampanoag chiefs arrived to ask the Pilgrims what had brought them to a place of unrest.
The Pilgrims said they were only practicing using their arms. Together, they tell a fifty-six-year intergenerational saga of discovery, accommodation, community, and war — a pattern that was repeated time and time again as the United States worked its way west and, ultimately, out into the world.
Philbrick has won many literary awards, such as the National Book Award for nonfiction, Theodore and Franklin D. Hanlan Book Award and the Harry M. Ward Book Prize in addition to countless other awards from various historical societies, genealogical societies and history museums. Published in , this book by British author Nick Bunker explores the prehistory of the Mayflower pilgrims and their first decade at Plymouth to try and uncover who they really were and what motivated them to come to the New World.
Using previously unused British archives, documents and church records, Bunker argues that the pilgrims were not so much religious refugees as they were Christian missionaries on a quest to spread Christianity to the New World. The book received good reviews when it was first published, with many reviewers praising its impeccable research, but many also pointed out that Bunker is a better researcher than a storyteller.
Pilgrims (Plymouth Colony)
The New York Times review of the book praises its great research but also points out the book is hard to follow at times:. He has many directions he wants to go in, and a great deal of information at his disposal, but he does not help the reader much. The evidence — all the details found, sorted, glued together — adds up to a picture so full and vivid as to constitute a virtual ground-level tour of an otherwise lost world. Published in , this book explores the personal histories of the Mayflower passengers as well as the history of the ship itself.
The book consists of short biographies on each of the Mayflower families and individuals, tracing them from their baptism to their travels to Holland and the New World to their deaths in Plymouth.
