Touring the Mayflower and Daily Life in Plymouth

Scholastic has put together a nice little collection of online resources to help elementary school students learn about Pilgrims, Native Americans, and The First Thanksgiving.

Voyage on the Mayflower has two parts for students to explore. The first part is an interactive map of the journey across the Atlantic Ocean. Students can click on placemarks on the map to read and hear about the journey. The second part of the Voyage on the Mayflower takes students "inside" the Mayflower to see and hear about the parts of the ship.

Daily Life is a comparison of the lifestyles of the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag. Students can click through each aspect of daily life to see a comparison of housing, clothing, food, chores, school, and games.

Finally, Scholastic has partnered with Plimoth Plantation to produce three video tours of Plimoth Plantation, a Wampanoag homesite, and a Pilgrim homesite.

Free Printable Calendars

I keep all of my important appointments in a Google Calendar. I also write some of them on paper too just to have a visual reminder when I sit at my desk. If you use a similar system, you might be interested in these free printable calendars. From the website you can print calendars for any month of the year in 2012, 2013, 2014 and beyond. Just select the month and year then click print.

Applications for Education
If you need some paper calendars to distribute to students or if you just want a calendar for your desk, these calendars are for you. In an effort to recycle, I printed one for December on the back of some scrap paper.
