What really happened at the First Thanksgiving?  Become a history detective and find out!

In this fun, award-winning activity, kids take on the role of “history detectives” to investigate what really happened at the famous 1621 celebration.  Along the way, they’ll read a letter written by an eyewitness to the event, learn about Wampanoag traditions of giving thanks, and visit Pilgrim Mary Allerton’s home. As a final activity, kids can design and print their own Thanksgiving exhibit panel.
