Lincoln fifth grade students were able to turn back the clock to Pilgrim times with a visit from a historical interpreter from Plimoth Plantation, Plymouth Massachusetts. Representing Mayflower passenger John Howland, the interpreter told the story of his timedressed in authentic colonial clothing and speaking in period dialects. Students were even given the chance to dress in authentically made clothing that children of the 1620’s would have worn. The event was sponsored by a local member of the Mayflower Society. It was a cultural experience our students won’t forget.
