First we tried making some sea biscuits that we read the pilgrims ate on their long sea voyage.
|The recipe is very to follow and make just flour salt and water|
|we made ours round shaped instead of square:)|
|Out of the oven, they didn't look too bad.|
|We tried one straight out of the oven and the kids thought they weren't too bad:)|
|Kids started just a couple feet away and found it very hard to do|
|They kept moving closer to the post|
|Until we had success:)|
|This game is a game of chance where the kids threw 5 pennies into a bowl and depending on how many showed head or tails determined how many counters they earned each turn (we used marbles for the counters)|
|Kids enjoyed the game so much they played it several times.|
There are several other activities that can be used to go along with this book that we didn't used this time around as we have done them in past lessons over the years, such as:
Making a quadrant
Making an Indian meal
and making a pilgrim pocket (which would make a great sewing project)
We are wrapping up our history lessons for pilgrims and going to read Mrs. Kilbride's next 2 book in the America series King Philip War Adventures and Salem Adventures. I look forward to trying out some more of her activities that go along with the books.
Recently Mrs. Kilbride has come out with the 4th book in the series called The Revolutionary War Adventures and I was given the opportunity to review her new book. That review will be coming shortly.
Disclosure: I was not paid to do another post for Mrs. Kilbride but we really enjoyed her books and the children enjoyed the activities we found on her website.
