Plimoth patuxet shallop

Homeschool Day - Ships, Shallops, and Mishoonash

Watercraft were essential to community life for both Plymouth Colony and the Wampanoag community of Patuxet. In this Homeschool Adventure, you`ll explore traditional mishoonash (boats) and discover the unique relationships between water, land, and people that still sustain Wampanoag communities today. You`ll also spend time aboard Mayflower II, learning the ropes and practicing skills and trades that 17th-century English mariners needed to sail across the ocean. Best for ages 8+.
