For this week’s Field Trip Friday, let us travel all the way back to 1600s New England, specifically to Plymouth, Massachusetts! But wait… don’t we need a time machine for that? I don’t have that kind of money!
Well, lucky for us, we don’t need a time machine to experience what life was like during colonial times in Plymouth! Watch the following video to learn about the fascinating exhibits found at the Plimoth Patuxet Museum in Massachusetts. Immerse yourself in the experience of one of the earliest European settlements of North America! Their outdoor and indoor learning environments are full of rich history and provide knowledge about the culture of the English settlers, and that of the Wampanoag People of the area.
Also, follow the link below to play a fun game, provided by the museum, that tells the perspectives of both the native people and English settlers. Enjoy your trip back in time!
