Plimoth Plantation

We spent this morning at Plimoth Plantation exploring the beautiful grounds and meandering paths, and learning more about the Pilgrims and Native Americans.

While it was a great introduction to colonial America, my mind is dancing with all of the lessons and activities we could create around this living museum as the kids get older. For now, we'll use our visits, the museum's online activities, and good children's books-- like The Thanksgiving Story by Alice Dalgliesh, and The Story of the Pilgrims by Katharine Ross--as our primary learning tools.
