Interesting and Fun Mar 1, 2008
We read this for Social Studies this week. It is the history of Plymouth Rock. This was a really good factual book that was told in such a way that my 8 year old really enjoyed it. Who know that it traveled? It was recommended in the book Social Studies Through Children's Literature by Anthony D. Fredricks and is recommended for grades K-3rd.
It shows how the rock moved a lot. Dec 11, 1998
It is funny how a rock can move from place to place and got broken two times. First, it was on the beach. Then the Pilgrims saw it. When they tried to move it broke. The top of the rock got all the fame. Then they cemented both pieces together and it stands under a special place.
