Mayflower Ship Tutorial

In late 1620, the Mayflower landed near Plymouth, Massachusetts. This amazing ship is made of dozens of sails, ropes, masts and windows. I simplified it to some main compartments so that students could focus on making the sails look like they were full of wind. This sample was drawn on Krafty Cardstock and colored with my favorite Reeves Coloured Pencils.

I have done this for years in 4th grade and it is always successful. We do it all together and I do not speak during the lesson. They see and draw. It is a blast!
