Hands-on Wampanaog Craft Activity

Grades 3-12
In the 17th century, the Wampanoag people made their own toys and household implements. In this program, a Native Museum teacher will lead a craft workshop. Students will make a corn husk doll or a clay pot. In this context, students will learn about Wampanoag culture, including the significance of the raw materials, the use of the object they have made, and the roles of Wampanoag men and women - who would have made this object in the 17th century?

Cost: $300 for one program, $375 for two programs, $100 for each additional program. Travel charges apply.

Playing Pilgrim games at Plimoth Plantation 

Learn to play games the Pilgrims played, or learn popular dance and song of 17th-century England!

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.

 

Music and Dance

 Grades 3-12
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. 

Massachusetts History and Social Science Framework: 2.7, 2.8, 3.12.

Cost: $300 for one program, $375 for two programs, $100 for each additional program. Travel charges apply.

Games

 Grades 2-12
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.
