I get so many ideas each month from this fabulous linky hosted on the 3rd of each month by Inspired Owl's Corner and Pawsitively Teaching.

I love this idea of having students brainstorm things they could pack to bring with them on the Mayflower if they were a Pilgrim.  This will be a great writing activity after reading If I Sailed on the Mayflower in 1620 by Ann McGovern.

Since we are working on story retell this month, this will be just perfect to make with my first graders.

This site has fantastic videos has the Pilgrims and the Mayflower. I am fortunate enough to live a half hour away from Plymouth Planation. If you are ever in Massachusetts, it is an incredible thing to see.

  1. Love the adorable turkey hats! The Thanksgiving video is perfect....I have already shared it with a few teachers on my campus! Thanks for linking up and sharing such great ideas for November!

  2. I could definitely use some videos about Thanksgiving. Thanks for sharing!

  3. My good friend went to Plymouth Plantation about 13 years ago to a Colonial School for teachers! I was about to have baby #2 so I couldn't go with her! I love your suitcase idea- that would really make the students think! Those turkey hats would be so cute on my kiddos the day of our feast. Thank you for sharing your great pins and linking up! :)
