Instead of just reading about it, you can step aboard the Mayflower and take your class on a virtual field trip to Plimoth Plantation! At Scholastic, students can watch video reenactments of Pilgrim life and what it may have been like to live aboard the Mayflower! Scholastic also has some fantastic online resources and printables for Thanksgiving on their site! You might want to head over to Scholastic and check it out!

I learned some new and interesting things on my virtual trip! I also had a good belly laugh over the part about the "poop deck"! I think your class will too!
