So in Kindergarten, to learn about Then & Now we recreate the Mayflower dimensions (using cones) on the blacktop.
The students gather together and learn all about how the trip must have been - seasickness, limited food, no bathrooms...you get the picture, the whole activity is VERY eye opening! I have such respect for those Pilgrims (not sure I'd have had it in me).
Some photos of our recreation:
