We will have the following discussions:
Clothes were different. You know what the Pilgrims wore. They got the woolen and
linen cloth for their clothes from England. The natives used materials around them.
Their clothes were made mostly from animal skins and fur pelts. Find pictures of the
two kinds of clothing. Which was more practical? Which would you have liked to
wear?
Although Squanto taught the Pilgrims about many foods, their meals were very
different, too. The Pilgrims had meals in the morning, at noon and in the evening.
The natives ate one meal a day, but it was a big one. Usually it was a stew made in
an open pot over a fire. It was shared by all. What was not eaten was kept there all
day for anyone who was hungry or for any visitor. Which would you like?
The natives had been living on this land for thousands of years. They had their own
customs and laws. The Pilgrims brought with them their English customs. What did
each group have to do to learn to get along together?
