Mission Activity
Pilgrim holding a sign
Close your eyes and pretend that you are a pilgrim.  We just boarded the Mayflower in Plymouth Harbor, England.  Our destination is America, where we hope to find peace and freedom.  We arrive in America and set up a colony. We call this colony Plimoth.  During our stay, we meet and become good friends with the Wampanoag Indian tribe.  William Bradford,the govenor of Plimoth Colony, has declared that we have a feast to give thanks for our first harvest.  To prepare for this exciting event, we will need to design an outfit to wear.  After looking at the website on pilgrim clothing, you need to draw the outfit you would like to wear to the first Thanksgiving.
