This is true for all artists across all fields and has been so for several hundred years. If we could all get the same amount of knowledge, experience, and talent from the same method then there would be less individuality in our art works.

There is no evidence that any pigs were brought from England or that any were being raised by the settlers. Neither sweet potatoes nor regular potatoes were common, and corn would have been dried and put away for winter at this point. Neither were there any cows for milk although there may have been goats for cheese. What the settlers did eat in abundance is meat. These meat included cod, eel, clams, lobster wild turkey, goose, duck, crane, swan, partridge, eagle venison, and seal.

When you get the call to substitute, the teacher will provide a teachers zone, specific instructions and/or materials for that day. Go early enough to scan over these papers and get a feel for your responsibilities. Some students like to test the substitute teacher.

One other plan and thought to consider is a Sick Day Plan. A Sick Day Plan is used when you (the teacher) is absent or too ill to carry through. a good rule of thumb is to use it for reviewing everything you have covered.

I usually had one with each unit plan that could be pulled out on a moments notice for use.
