Pilgrims separating from the Church of England and go to Holland
We don't want to stay here at this church we are going to go to Holland
Fine you do what ever you want to we don't even like you.
The voyage of the Mayflower to Plymouth (Remember that it was a 2 month voyage with many hardships
Plymouth here we come maybe, if we all make it there.
The Mayflower Compact (1620)
lets sign this compact so that we will all have to follow it.
Ok that sounds like a great idea lets do it. All of us even the native Americans have to and the African Americans have to follow them.
Pilgrims that go to the church are telling the church leader that they don't have enough religious freedom and that they are going to leave.
The First Winter (1620-1621
It's way to cold and so many of us are dying to the cold weather.
And we have barely any supplies left we are going to run out soon.
The pilgrims on the Mayflower setting off for the Americas to have more religious freedoms.
Squanto helps the Pilgrims
My name is Squanto and I am here to help you with growing your crops and other things like that.
Thank goodness we need help with our crops and other things because we are almost out of supplies.
The pilgrims finally getting to the Americas and signing a compact that says things like what kind of people are going to be in the government and the rules of the colony.
The “First Thanksgiving” (Harvest Celebration)
I fell like since Squanto helped us so much this past winter that we should celebrate with food.
The people of the colony in the first really cold winter that they have ever been in and they are running out of food very fast and they a starting to eat what ever they can scavenge.
You think that it is cold try being a slave and being out here in the cold all day.
One of the Native Americans named Squanto finally came to help the colony to grow food and other things like that.
The pilgrims are so happy about how some of the Native Americans came to help them with some of the problems that they were having that they decided to throw a huge feast for everyone to come and celebrate at.
