Kids Writing Historical Fiction: More on Mourt

Today most of the kids finished their illustrations for Mourt’s Relation using Connie and Peter Roops’ Pilgrim Voices as a source. This is a terrific book for kids which combines parts of Mourt’s Relation with William Bradford’s Of Plymouth Plantation. The illustrations by Shelley Pritchett are excellent; they are clearly carefully researched and a great help to the children as they do their own.  After completing the illustrations, the kids scanned them onto our computer server, and then uploaded them onto (into?) individual blog posts.  Please go to our class blog where you will find links to the indvidual student blogs (on the right) and can go see these fantastic illustrations (says their slightly prejudiced teacher:).
