Just some quick thoughts, off the top of my head--what kind of artforms
were created by the Pilgrims? Or what did they have available to decorate
their homes? If you can find out, you'd have a meaningful ART lesson.
Embroidery/stitchery? Well-crafted furniture (okay, a little ambitious
for k kids)? Punched tinware? Yikes, I hope they weren't so austere
that they had no art!
Sorry, I'm not too much help--I teach HS on a reservation (not the
place to appreciate the Pilgrims ;) ) Let us know what you decide.
