Program Details


This program begins with the introduction of Mary Allerton, a pilgrim from the Mayflower. Students will participate in discussion and answer questions as part of an interactive “trip” from England to the New World. Students will also complete a craft activity during the session to help students remember the voyage and life in the New World. We hope they are able to retell the story using their craft.


Students will:
demonstrate an understanding of why the pilgrims left England to come to America.
explain the hardships pilgrims faced in the New World.
explain the relationships between the pilgrims and the Native Americans
demonstrate an understanding of the history of the Thanksgiving holiday.
