To Town Square


Featuring students from South Elementary School, Plymouth, MA.

PLYMOUTH ROCK (CONT’D)
They placed me next to the Liberty Pole,
and this became the meeting spot
for the town’s important meetings and protests.
I was glad I was able to be
a symbol of freedom and loved when people talked
about my history of helping the Pilgrims. 

STUDENT 20
You must have loved your new spot in town
and being able to see all the townspeople
every day! 

PLYMOUTH ROCK
It was wonderful at first.
In addition to being a part of
the townspeople’s meetings, visitors would travel
many miles to get a glimpse of me.
Unfortunately,
some of these visitors were greedy. 

STUDENT 21
How were they greedy? 

PLYMOUTH ROCK
After learning my story,
they wanted to take a piece home with them.
Many visitors would bring chisels
to pick off little pieces of me! 

STUDENT 22
Didn’t you tell them to stop! 

PLYMOUTH ROCK
I did, but they didn’t listen.
They just kept chiseling away
and I was becoming smaller every day.
