Happy Thanksgiving! Here is a virtual tour of Plimoth Plantation the site of the first Thanksgiving. The teacher in me couldn’t resist this easy way to study history on this day of thanksgiving, feasting, movies, and shopping!
Happy Thanksgiving! I just couldn’t resist re-sending you this video which is the living museum presentation of this 17th century settlement on the coast of Massachusetts where the first Thanksgiving was celebrated. It is a thirty minute video for you to view as much as you are interested . The village, life style,language, and clothing are as authentic as possible. The Pilgrims answer questions in language appropriate to the 1620s. A bathroom would be a privy and if you ask about automobiles and or airplanes they react in great confusion because they would not be cognoscente of our culture or modern day inventions. I have visited Plimoth on field trips where some students really get involved and ask questions, enjoying the “living” experience. Plimoth is the spelling of the original settlers, and not a misspelling.
Namaste. . . . . This Is Plimouth Plantation in 1620s
