Here are some things to talk about with your group or class while making your turkeys:
The Pilgrims took an epic journey across the Atlantic Ocean to a new world.
Plymouth Rock is the traditional site of the landing of William Bradford and the Mayflower Pilgrims who founded Plymouth Colony in 1620. It is an important symbol in American history.
The Pilgrims had a perilous first winter at Plymouth.
The helmsman held a very important job aboard the Mayflower.
Pilgrims lived in homes modeled after English cottages with a roof made of thatch.
Without timber, the Pilgrims would not have been able to build their homes.
Petticoats, breeches, doublets, and stockings were just a few of the many layers of clothing the Pilgrims wore.
During the First Thanksgiving celebration, both the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag ate venison, among many other delicious foods.
