Thanksgiving Interactive: You are the Historian

What really happened at the First Thanksgiving? In this activity from Plimoth Plantation, kids take on the role of “history detectives” to investigate what happened at the famous 1621 celebration. 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 can design and print their own Thanksgiving exhibit panel.
