In 1620, the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Massachusetts. They sought religious freedom instead of commercial profit. They has signed the Mayflower compact before coming ashore. They made an agreement in which they set out guidelines for governing their North American colony. The Indians taught the Pilgrims how to grow corn and helped them survive in the new land.
This video allows students to take a virtual tour of the Plimoth Plantation where the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag Indians celebrated the first Thanksgiving. Students learn through interviews about the daily lives of the pilgrims and the Wampanoag people, as well as how they gave thanks during what is now a celebrated holiday. – Maria R
