Pilgrim Chores Compare/Contrast
Written by Dawn in Texas
Kindergarten Teacher

We read some non-fiction books about Pilgrims and the chores that they do. I have my children write about chores that they do at home. We compare/contrast our chores to their chores. We also make Mosaic Pilgrim (boy and girl) heads to display with our writing.

Here are some pictures of the mosaics and the writing:

Webmaster note:  Wow Dawn!  It's amazing that you have your kindergarteners writing this well so early in the year!  The writing/art project is a great way to teach kids about pilgrim life and the importance of taking responsibility.  Many thanks for sharing this idea... and the pictures!
