Virtual Field Trip to Plimouth Plantation, The First Thanksgiving


Join us as we take a Virtual Field Trip to Plimouth Plantation and learn about the First Thanksgiving.  We will travel via webcast to get a behind-the-scenes look at the simple but arduous life of the Pilgrims, witness the day-to-day life of the indigenous people who were part of the Wampanoag Nation and see their resourceful solutions to everyday challenges, and join the Pilgrims and Wampanoag as they discuss together their lives, collaboration, and the first Thanksgiving.  This event is recommended for grades K-6.
