Objectives of the Lesson:
To develop an appreciation for an unknown world.
Students will learn how long the voyage took, they will chart the course from England to New England.
Students will be assigned to a vessel. It will be the Hector headed by John Davenport. Each student will be given a diary to record their impressions of this voyage. This will serve as their notebook for history notes. We will record the members of our family. How much the voyage cost? Why we are going? What we have been able to bring with us.
I will provide the list of passengers and students will determine which family they wish be part of. This information I have included from the Colonial Records from the New Haven Colony Historical Society.
