These active hands-on Traveling Workshops focus on a lighter side of 17th-century English life. Each fun-filled program weaves historical background with plenty of hands-on exploration and activities. Workshops are led by non-costumed Museum teachers and require a large open area such as a gymnasium. Programs can be held outside, weather permitting, but please make sure to have a back-up indoor space reserved.

The Music and Dance workshop provides the opportunity for students to explore two popular forms of 17th-century entertainment: singing and dancing. After talking about the role of music and dance in the lives of 17th-century English people in general, and the Pilgrims in particular, students learn popular songs from the time and perform a country dance.
Hard work was the norm for families in 17th-century England and New England, but children and adults also played games and sports. Students will learn about the role of play in a 17th-century child's life by participating in popular English pastimes such as nine-pins, hoop-rolling, and telling riddles. This workshop may be held outside, weather permitting. We require an indoor space to be reserved as a back-up for inclement weather.
