Thanksgiving Web Quest: A First Thanksgiving Activity
Students set off on fact-finding missions to learn about the Pilgrims, the Wampanoag people, and the famous harvest feast!
- Grades: 3–5
“The Thanksgiving Web Quest” interactive activity poses seven multiple-choice questions about the Pilgrims, the Wampanoag, the Mayflower voyage, and the Thanksgiving feast. If students don’t already know the answers, they can look them up with Scholastic’s suggested websites.
Before traveling to America, many of the Pilgrims left England in 1606 to start their own church. To which European country did they move?
Students can submit their answer, or go to this website to find the answer.
While participating in "Thanksgiving Web Quest," students learn to:
- Use technology tools to access, explore, and synthesize information about the Mayflower, Pilgrims, Plymouth colony, Wampanoags, and the first Thanksgiving
- Read for detail
- Demonstrate comprehension through experiential response
