Why Lesson Planet?
Fourth graders investigate the hardships Pilgrims faced on the Mayflower and Speedwell. In this Pilgrim lesson, 4th graders listen to an account of the Pilgrim's voyage from Plymouth, England to present day Massachusetts. Students sit in a small taped off area of the classroom to experience the cramped quarters of the Mayflower. Students sing "The Speedwell and Mayflower song."
