Pilgrims on the have an awful journey, that I will take you on with this Story Board.
Pilgrims separating from the Church of England and go to Holland
We are separating from the Catholic Church. I got a Charter and a ship, so we are heading to the New World! We leave tomorrow!
The voyage of the Mayflower to Plymouth
I hate these Pilgrims! I can't wait to dump them! OH! Did I say that out loud?
The Mayflower Compact (1620)
All righty men! We are signing a compact so we all stay in order.
Maybe when we are older we can sign it?
I think I'm getting sea sick!
The Pilgrims are separating from the Church of England and are getting ready to go on the Mayflower.
The First Winter (1620-1621)
It's so cold! And there is no food!
The only children on the Mayflower are enjoying their first thirty minutes ever off the deck, while Captain Grumpy and his crew are not very happy about the Pilgrims on board. The captain and his crew don't like the Pilgrims.
Squanto helps the Pilgrims
Here is some food to help you through the winter. Oh, and I am Squanto by the way!
All the men are getting ready to sign the Mayflower Compact. The only children on the Mayflower in the corner are wishing they could also sign the compact, but instead are watching all the older men do it instead. Some people otherwise are getting sea sick.😖
The “First Thanksgiving” (Harvest Celebration)
We'll call today Thanksgiving!
It's so cold in the winter the Pilgrims can't grow any crops! They can't find any food either. Plus the children are freezing. Some people are getting small pox!
Squanto helps the Pilgrims and gives them food to get through the first winter. The children are so thankful and shocked! But, since there aren't a lot of people left there is more food to go around.
To this day we still have Thanksgiving and still tell the story of Squanto and the Pilgrims.
