The Pilgrims

THE JOURNY OF A LIFETIME

BY: EVAN ZEHR

THE REASON WHY THEY LEFT

The Pilgrims Left England for many reasons but that's not all that I will be talking about. I will be talking about the struggle to survive the Pilgrims adventure. I will be telling you about why the Pilgrims left England. How they survived the harsh winter, and the first Thanksgiving. I find the Pilgrim's story very interesting , but will you.

THE VOYAGE

The pilgrims left England on September 6th 1620 so they could practice the religion they chose. In England you had to go to the English church. If it was found you didn't go you could be executed. The pilgrims wanted freedom to practice the religion they chose to practice. In America they didn't have to worry about being killed. This is why the pilgrims left England

FIGHTING TO SURVIVE

When the pilgrims arrived there was a lot to do in order to survive. They quickly put up houses made out of wood planks and thatch. The pilgrims got sick from poor food and discomfort. They had to hunt for their food such as, deer turkey and quail. They cooked their food over a fire. Squanto helped the pilgrims plant food in the spring. That is how the pilgrims managed to survive the harsh winter of 1620 and 1621.

THE FIRST THANKSGIVING

The First Thanksgiving was a happy time in the colony. The Indians taught the Pilgrims how to plant corn with fish. They also taught the colonists how to sneak up on animals. The celebration lasted three whole days. There were games and a lot of food. The pilgrims were very thankful to the Indians. Without them they wouldn't have survived

Closing Paragraph

All of the hard things the pilgrims went through, showed what they would do to get away from the church of England. It showed their bravery. It showed their strength. Though without the Indians they wouldn't have survived. Without the Indians there would be no Plymouth, and possibly no America.
