Description

Our The Pilgrims Lesson Plan engages students with information to define pilgrim and describes life for those who came to America.  Explore the modern day pilgrimages people embark on to reinforce the concept of pilgrims and engage idea sharing as students reflect on what they would have enjoyed most and least if living in 1621.

Sample Classroom Procedure / Teacher Resources Snippet:

  1. Display a map of the world, focusing the students’ attention on England and America. Ask students open-ended questions such as: What do you think it would be like sailing across the ocean?  How would you like to sail across the ocean?  What would be easy about it, difficult?  What if you had to do it 400 years ago?
  2. Allow for responses and discussion. Introduce the Pilgrims to the students.
  3. Distribute The Pilgrims content pages. Read and review the information with the students. Explain to students that a pilgrim (lowercase -p) is a person who travels to another country for religious reasons. You may also introduce pilgrimages people take today.)
  4. Distribute the Activity pages and colored pencils. Review the instructions.
  5. Allow time for students to complete the coloring and review the correct answers.
  6. Distribute the Practice page. Check and review the students’ responses. (You may do the Practice page together as a class depending on the age of your students.)
  7. Distribute the Homework page. The next day, check and review the students’ responses.
  8. In closing, ask students: What would be your favorite thing to do as a Pilgrim in 1621?  What would be your least favorite thing to do?
  9. Allow for responses and discussion.
