Happy Thanksgiving

For a unique and authentic look at the events and people involved in the first Thanksgiving, visit the Plimoth Plantation’s site You Are the Historian: Investigating the First Thanksgiving .

For those too far away from Plymouth, Massachusetts, to visit this amazing site in person (where you can tour a full-scale reproduction of the Mayflower II, visit an English village, and participate in a variety of other educational experiences), a virtual visit to their website can provide you with some interesting insights into this holiday and its beginnings. Vivid visuals  and audio make this investigation inviting and informative.

In addition, you may want to share some of these books with your students:
