Teaching Tuesday: The Mayflower Simulation

Tuesday, November 13, 2018
We are introducing our Thanksgiving unit with these little activities.  The picture above is NOT mine, I googled Mayflower Simulation.  I also refer to a challenge activity that I found a free printable off.  Here is the video link.
The district has added in social studies test this year, so I included a few activities to have them reading compasses and using map scales like the one below.  
 I also found this free link to Scholastics where kids can 'tour' the mayflower and I provided QR codes.
Once the students try this out and we find out what works or what doesn't.....I'll spruce it up and make a printable until maybe by next year.  If it's a complete bust.....I won't.
