Yesterday we, along with some JECA and FB families, enjoyed a 1/2 hour online, field trip to Plimoth Plantation. I’ve been around the block a few times, and Plimoth is one of my favorite places in the world. It’s the beginning of probably my favorite fragment of history (1600-1800), and my four trips to the village are very pleasant memories.
The moderator did a very good job, and I especially appreciated the two Pilgrim interpreters (one was a young girl). He even did a little pull on them with the comments about football and the airplane, and they plied their craft masterfully.
Anyway, I appreciate Scholastic for hosting the event, and, though I don’t know how long it will remain, you can watch a replay of the event here: Plimoth Plantation Virtual Field Trip.
Afterwards, you can go here to learn more about the special place. Visit the online shop, too, to find some very creative gift ideas. I especially love the reproductions, which they make on site (right now I’m drinking sweet tea out of my three-handled tyg). Enjoy: Plimoth Plantation Website.
