Which was the reason of the trip to America?

The Pilgrims were separatists who separated away from the church. Emigrated to Amsterdam in 1608 to avoid religious persecution. The next year they traveled to Leiden, where they enjoyed religious freedom. In 1617, the Separatists decided to emigrate to America. Travelers regrouped in Plymouth, the Speedwell, carried them to Southampton, England, where they joined another group of Separatists and take a second boat, the Mayflower. And the fate of this boat was America.

Thanksgiving feast


When the Pilgrim come to Plimoth, they built 7 houses and three store houses for keep the first harvest. The Pilgrims survive all the winter.


The ducks are the main principal eat in 1621 because are many waterfowl in the Bay.


The Pilgrims woman roasts the duck for his husband while the children pitched in by grinding corn into samp. The samp is corn based oatmeal.


The native Wapanoag and Massasoit helped to the Pilgrims to survive. The Pilgrim´s feast was an act with celebration this help.The leader name was Ousamequin not Wapanoag.

5. A Wampanoag Gift

The means of Wampanoag hunt deer, and prepare a gift. The meat of the deer is their favourite dish.

6. Dinner is served

In the first Thanksgiving they don´t use the turkey, their dish for this celebration was the duck and venison.

7. A weeklong Feast

The meal ocupate all the week

8. Guest Quarters

The pilgrims ocupate the zone all the week. They builds your houses.

9. Playing Games
Between meals, the Pilgrims and the Wampanoang played games. The Wampanoag can learned the play Pin. The Wampanoag and the Pilgrim children might have played Blind Man´s Bluff together as well.

10. Test of Skill

One of the sports among the English was target shooting, the men competed to see who was the best shot. Besides sports, there was singing and dancing among the Wampanoag and the Pilgims.

11. The High Table

The “high table” at one of the meals would have been impressive, Massasoit, Squanto(the Wampanoag who taught the Pilgrims to plantnative crops), Governor William Bradfor, Captain Miles Standish, William Brewster and at least of Massasit´s or warrior counsellors.

Hope you like it! ;)

Hi everyone!

It was really nice to meet you all last week. As you already know, my name is Nicola Barry. I am 22 years old and I am Irish :) I finished college last May. I studied Spanish and German and in the future, I would like to be a languages teacher. This is my first time working as a language assistant, but I am excited to help you all improve your English. I have visited Barcelona and Mallorca, but this is my first time living in Spain. I was nervous that I wasn't going to like Spanish food, but so far I really like eating chorizo and tortilla de patatas. My favourite food in Ireland is chicken curry. In my free time, I like to read, watch television and play sport. I am part of a Gaelic team in Ireland. I like to travel and one day, I hope to visit Australia. I look forward to getting to know you all over the next year.
Feel free to talk to me in English at any time :)
