Chalk Talk: Learn about Life on the Sea
There is nothing that brings historical happenings more alive than reading the personal words created in daily journal from someone who lived a long time ago. At the Girl on a Whaleship website created by the Martha’s Vineyard Museum, kids can read from a journal written by Laura Jernegan, a young girl who accompanied her family on a whaling ship. Written between 1868 and 1871, the journal started by the then six year old Laura chronicles the search for whales by Laura’s family including her father Captain Jared Jernegan as they sailed around Cape Horn looking for whales. In addition to the journal, there are photos of Laura and her family, letters, newspaper articles of the day, and ships logs that add to the personal account. A fascinating way to learn about whaling times and life on the sea in the late 1800’s.
