Focus On - Pre-K - Grade Two
The primary classrooms spent time this month learning about the Pilgrims and the Native Americans. They learned about the Pilgrim ship, the Mayflower, the houses they lived in, the foods they ate, chores the children were asked to do, games they may have played, and the clothing they wore. We were surprised to find out that the Mayflower's journey was more than 3,000 miles. We thought it was interesting that the Pilgrim boys often wore dresses until they were six or seven. We also studied the Native American tribe, the Wampanoags, and their daily life. We found out that the Wampanoag children played games just like we do. One game they played was called the Pin Game. A ring was attached to a stick. You had to try and flip the ring up and over the stick, or pin.
