I was hoping to share with you the amazing selection of activities, readers, and crafts about Thanksgiving on Enchanted Learning. But I eventually realized that only “registered users” could print out many of these resources. I am a registered user at work, and so I often reap the benefits. (I would encourage anyone who homeschools to consider registering as well. It is well worth the $20/year.)
One free activity offered on this site is the Pilgrim’s Voyage. Up until today, The Flash claims he has never heard of the Mayflower or Pilgrims. So we set about on a boat replication.
Identical to the picture book images of the Mayflower, eh?
The kids then “sailed” their vessels across the great Atlantic Ocean. The Flash’s Mayflower even encountered storms and major setbacks forcing it to return to England.
Oh well, no history lesson can be perfect.
The Flash was so enamored with photo manipulation, that he wanted to show off his skills. He started with an entirely black & white photo and “painted” the color back on. He chose the frame and insisted that the “Super Powers signature” was put on as well. 😉
I failed to photograph the Mayflower fleet that was eventually created. But you can use your imagination as to how they took over the 7 seas….
