Grades 1-3: Preparing for Plymouth Plantation

This week, students in grades K-5 will be visiting Plymouth Plantation.  Today, we will explore the website, take a virtual trip using Google Earth, view a slideshow of some of the highlights of Plymouth Plantation and learn how to talk like a pilgrim!

"Good Morrow"
 "How Do You Fare, Goodwife?"

The Pilgrims talked a little differently than we do today. If you visit the Museum's 17th-Century English Village, you will notice that the townspeople say words you know in a funny way, or even say some words you don't know at all! That's because they are speaking in 17th-century English, not 21st-century modern English.  Click here to learn more!
