Third grade students are taking a virtual field trip this week in the compuer lab with this link at Scholastic --The First Thanksgiving. Once on the website students have so many choices of tabs including The Mayflower, Daily Life, The Feast, Historical Letters and the popular favorite: Video's and Photos.
On the Mayflower tab students can choose to Journey on the Mayflower; a narrated video slide show of the crossing of the Atlantic, or Tour the Ship to see a photograph of each area with a description that can be listened to by clicking on the speaker icon.

Other tabs include:
  • Daily Life depicts Housing, Clothes, Food, Chores, Games and School. 
  • The Feast has ten interactive slides, again with narration. 
  • Historical Letters has six letters from both Pilgrims and Wampanoags that you can read. You can also listen to someone imitating the way each of these people would have spoken in 1620.
  • Videos and Photos Here are 14 video tours and slide shows, some short, some long, with characters from Plimoth Plantation talking all about life in the 1620's for the Pilgrims and the Wampanoags.
