We started at Plimoth Plantation. I chaperoned Collin's third grade field trip to Plimoth Plantation last November, and it felt so rushed that I promised we would visit on our own. It was very nice taking our time walking through the villages and speaking with the natives and Pilgrims. Note: "Plimoth" is spelled this way (different from the spelling of the town name) because that is the original English spelling.
Our first stop was the Wampanoag village.
I didn't even get a picture of the funniest part of our time in the Wampanoag village. There was a man walking around in a loin cloth, and Reagan was incredibly embarrassed. Her face was so funny; she just didn't know what to make of him and his attire.
We moved on to the English village.
Reagan asked one of these women where they "go to the bathroom". The woman replied that she didn't understand the question. A man in the house with us said, "I think she wants to know where your privy is". The woman then pointed out the chamber pot under the bed, and mentioned that they also go out in the garden. Reagan thought this sounded terrible and said that she would never go!
Once we had visited each home, we went to the discovery room so the kids could reenact a bit of what they experienced.
We did buy:
This is the game we saw in the discovery room. Hopefully we can play it this weekend.
