For Day #10 of the 25 Days of Thanksgiving, I wanted to focus on Plymouth (or maybe it should be spelled Plimoth?). I was a little surprised that I didn’t find as much as I thought I would on this subject. I have already shared about the Mayflower and Pilgrims. Those two subjects go right along with Plymouth basically. But I have tried to see what I could find about the Pilgrims life in Plymouth.
Scholastic has wonderful resources for Thanksgiving. I shared a link to this same page when I did The Mayflower on Day #3 and if you look beside the Mayflower video, there is one about The Pilgrim Village that is really good. They also have Teaching Resources that you can check out as well.
This is the website of the actual Plimoth Plantation that you can visit in Plymouth, MA. If you click on “Learn” , there are some teacher resources there that you may find useful.
I found a few posts on blogs from when they actually visited Plimoth Plantation as a field trip. They have some really good pictures and information that I thought was interesting and worth sharing.
Here are some books that may be good for learning about Plymouth/Plimoth:
Plimoth Plantation (A Pictorial Guide) by James W. Baker
1621: A New Look at Thanksgiving by Catherine O’Neill Grace
Stranded at Plimoth Plantation 1626 by Gary Bowen
Tuxedo Discovers Plimoth Plantation by Tara M. Autrey
Don’t forget to look up Plymouth, Massachusetts on the USA map and learn more about that state as well as the rest of the original 13 Colonies. While your at it, you could work on your map skills and learn about Longitude/Latitude lines or anything else about maps that interests you! I know my kids LOVE working with maps.
Well, there wasn’t as much to share today but I do hope you enjoyed it and maybe found something you can use! I would love to hear from you if you are enjoying my 25 Days of Thanksgiving Series! Please comment anytime.
