The Peanuts characters take the voyage to the new world. When they get there, they learn about disease, planting, building, and Squanto shows them how to get corn (or maize, as he calls it) to grow. They eventually have the first Thanksgiving.
These questions start off with an essential question (hook) that will get the students thinking about the Pilgrim's journey to Plymouth. These questions will help the students make sense of the information in the video. I have also include a word search puzzle that will help reinforce key vocabulary from the video (medium level). No prep needed!
This is an excellent lesson to help introduce the Pilgrim's voyage to America. This video works best when supplemented by reading material. This video guide comes with a completed teacher key. Ready to print and ready to use! Enjoy!
Topics explored in this video: Pilgrims, Squanto, Samoset, First Thanksgiving, Mayflower, Plymouth Settlement
