The Pilgrim Story







Enter the world of the 1620s and experience the joys and hardships.

In third grade we visit the Plimoth Plantation (1627) and the Mayflower (1621) on a very special field trip. Below are some web site links to visit and learn more about this incredible chapter of American history. Come on a virtual tour of the Pilgrim Hall Museum, Plimoth Plantation, the Mayflower, and more! Follow the journey of the Pilgrims and Wampanoags beginning in the year 1620. You can find an actual journal entry by William Bradford about the first Thanksgiving in 1621 at the Pilgrim Hall Museum! The sites below have lots of information about it all! Many have interactive tours of this time period. Come and enjoy!

Fare thee well.
