Product Description
The True Story of the Pilgrims & the First Thanksgiving teaches students what life was like for the Pilgrims as they traveled on the Mayflower and made new homes in America, while learning about the Native Americans who lived nearby. This slide show uses paintings and drawings of life in the 17th century - you will not find cartoon-like pictures in this presentation because I believe students of any age can appreciate fine art and explore the myriad of details to be found in this type of illustration. The 24 slides in the presentation have nearly 70 illustrations. They are accompanied by a 12-page script that includes more than 130 details about the Pilgrims. The slide show also includes six opportunities for students to write journal entries as though they were a Pilgrim during these historic times in an “I Was There” style. Please feel free to have students participate in all or just selected of the journal writing exercises. A journal-writing template and writing directions for the “I Was There” assignments are included with the unit. You may also wish to have your students take notes during the slide show so they can fully answer the directions while journal writing. Areas covered by the slide show include:
• Overview of Pilgrim beliefs and history
• The voyage of the Mayflower
• The Mayflower Compact
• Choosing a place for the new settlement
• Building homes and a fort
• Suffering during the first winter
• Meetings with Samoset, Squanto and Massasoit
• The first Thanksgiving meal
Give your class a clear grounding in the history behind Thanksgiving by starting with this slide show, then go on to explore other TPT offerings that correlate the holiday with math, reading, crafts, etc.
