Voyage difficulties • The foods they ate on board-salted meat and fish, peas, beans, beer, and hard cheese-were not very different from what the country folk in England ate in winter or early spring. A day's activities might be as follows: * Wake up, put away the bedding * Prayers * Breakfast * In good weather, activities like reading, games, exercise on deck * Cooking by the women in good weather * Dinner (noon meal) * Activities similar to the morning * Supper • Prayers • Sleep
Making a Math Connection • Materials: • Unifix blocks, large poster paper, colored markers • Construct a graph on the poster paper -------------------0----------------------- • Using popsicle sticks, select one male and one female. • They will help the teacher count the number of male and female children on the Mayflower.
A Graph is Drawn • This should activate student interest and questions. • How old were they? • Can you tell if he/she is boy or a girl from their name?
