LOVE this idea! Pilgrims could only take one trunk or "suitcase" with them on the mayflower. Have children list some items them would take with them to the "New World" if they were a pilgrim boy or girl and then illustrate their items.
The 50 States Song - I like this for teaching when the students need to think. It is calming approach and focuses on locations that are close together. This is so good for children who need help focusing and have processing deficits.
