Mayflower Voyage

Today we talked about the Pilgrims and what they brought over on the Mayflower.  They were only allowed to carry what could fit in their trunk. We talked about needs versus wants as we discussed what we would want to take on the Mayflower. 

Then we made our own Mayflower. 

Next we talked about what the pilgrims had to eat in their long voyage.  The two main things they had to eat were hardtack and salthorse. So I let them try it to see if they would have survived in the Mayflower. 
Before you have think "What on earth did Mrs. Elkins make my baby eat?" Don't panic. It was just a roll and beef jerky (but I never told them that) 😊
