This resource engages students with research about the life of the pilgrims and writing in first person point of view!
It allows students the opportunity to imagine what it would have really been like to be a pilgrim! They will research the voyage to America, daily life of the pilgrims, and the first Thanksgiving using guiding research questions. Students will then create a profile sheet for a pilgrim (real or imagined) and write journal entries from that Pilgrim’s perspective incorporating their research for each aspect they have researched.
