Part of Scholastic's First Thanksgiving project, the Journey on the Mayflower activity (grades 3–8) offers students an interactive map that illustrates the Pilgrims' journey across the Atlantic to the New World in 1620.
Students can follow their path, clicking for text, images, and videos that share details about the dangerous journey from start to finish. Students can also compare the original route to Virginia with the actual route to Plimoth.
While participating in the Journey on the Mayflower activity, students will:
- Use technology tools to access, explore, and synthesize information about the Mayflower
- Develop an understanding of why Pilgrims moved to the New World
- Read for detail
