Students will gain basic knowledge about the daily life of the Pilgrims and the first Thanksgiving by completing an internet-based worksheet. The Pilgrim Webquest uses a great website. The website allows students to explore the Mayflower, Plymouth, Wampanoag village, and the first Thanksgiving.
The webquest contains 54 questions and is a great way for students to learn more about the Pilgrims. An answer sheet is included for the teacher. The webquest takes most students at least one to two class periods to complete depending on their age level. You can have students do all parts of the webquest at once or one part of the webquest at a time. Another option is to have students work in groups of twos or threes and share their answers through a discussion during the next class period. Feel free to modify this activity if needed to fit the needs of your students.
