Say "Huzzah" This Thanksgiving!
This Thanksgiving, teach your child some words that Pilgrims would have spoken to each other back in the 1620's. While you're at it, we've found some words that our ancestors' new Native American neighbors passed along, too.
For some lively conversation this holiday, here’s a short translation sheet to share with your kids. For little ones, we expect that the words will be pretty challenging just to say; but for second graders and up, this is a great chance to expand language arts learning, and to reinforce social studies learning about time, social customs, and community. It’s also really good, old-fashioned fun.
What You Need:
- “Plymouth Talk” Sheet
- At least a couple of adventurous kids
