3rd Graders Visit Plimoth Plantation
On Thursday, November 4, third graders traveled back in time to 1627 on a visit to Plimoth Plantation. As part of their “Way Back When” Learning Through Music expedition on the Wampanoag and the Pilgrims, students conducted fieldwork at this living history museum where they explored recreations of a 17th-century Wampanoag homesite and a Pilgrim farming and maritime village. With the keen eyes of historians, they recorded their observations, questions, and notes in fieldwork journals, comparing Wampanoag homes, called wetus, with Pilgrim homes. What a beautiful day for fieldwork!
