Day 52 - Plimoth Plantation Field Trip - Mrs. O'Neill - Francis Wyman Grade 3

Our field trip to Plymouth was really fun! It was a little chilly and wet, but it was great to visit the Wampanoag Homesite and the 17th Century English Village where the Pilgrims lived. Thank you to our chaperones!

We had lunch then started our day in the Wampanoag Homesite.

"Rain in the Face" invited us into the nush wetu
 to learn about the Wampanoags. 

The children asked great questions!

Thank you, Mrs. Dickie and all our other chaperones!

The corn watch tower - Wampanoag children had
the responsibility of
sitting in it to throw stones
at the birds trying to eat their crops in the garden.

The 17th Century English Settler Village

The fort at the top of
the Pilgrim village had cannons.  

Men in the village ages 16-60 were trained
in the militia and had to wear armor like this.

Perfect fit!

The kids were so good traveling to and from!

And tired!
The 3rd grade concert featured songs
about Thanksgiving and delicious food!

Our violinists were outstanding!
