The younger children made some hand print, and thumbprint pilgrims, today. While they were at it, I thought it might be a good chance to give them a better visual concept of the number of colonists, who survived the first winter.
So, I helped them make 22 hand print men - by painting their palms cream, and four fingers black. We painted on hat brims, and added marker, and pencil details once the paint was dry.
They also made 4 women, by using cream fingers, and palms...
...14 thumbprint pilgrim teens...
...and 13 fingerprint children.
Then, the older children took turns, adding names (from a list on the Pilgrim Hall Museum site), to the faces.
It's amazing the amount of depth, seeing the actual number of faces, and knowing their names, has added to our study of the first Thanksgiving.
Now, to make 90 hand print Natives...I think we're goint to need more paper.
It's great to be a homeschooler.
