Project Based Learning: Planning the First Thanksgiving
Take your students on a trip through time and let them plan the First Thanksgiving. Students will research the food that would have been available to the Plymouth colonists and make a menu. Then students will research and pick the games for entertainment at the feast. And last they will research the Pilgrim's neighbors the Wampanoag Native Americans. They will also take a look at how the Native Americans like Squanto and Samoset helped the Pilgrims!
