Have you seen Homeschool.com’s Holiday Fun page? It’s full of fun/educational listings about Thanksgiving, Chanukah, Christmas, and more.
One of the Thanksgiving listings is the Thanksgiving Interactive: You are the Historian, which is brought to you by the Plimouth Plantation. Kids will take on the role of history detectives to investigate what really happened at the famous 1621 celebration (hint: It was a lot more than just a feast)! Along the way, they’ll read a letter written by an eyewitness to the event, learn about Wampanoag traditions of giving thanks, and visit Pilgrim Mary Allerton’s home. As a final activity, kids will design and print their own Thanksgiving exhibit panel.
Check it out! It’ll be fun–and fun learning is forever learning!
