We read a few different books about the Mayflower and the students were SO interested! Did you know that when the water went bad even the kids had to drink beer?! We then each got a suitcase to list what we would take with us on the Mayflower. These were pretty funny. My favorite was probably.... my mom's iphone. :-) To top it off we made Pilgrim hats. SO CUTE!!! Wish I could take credit for these great ideas but they came from my favorite 1st grade blog first grade parade! Thanks for the inspiration!!!
