  • Activities and Games

Created with Grolier Online, Scholastic’s Research Starters: Plymouth Colony activity helps students writing about this subject find what they need, fast.

In addition to a brief introduction on America’s first permanent Puritan settlement, students will find a glossary of terms to know, and links to 20 articles on related subjects, including The Mayflower Compact, Puritanism, Thanksgiving Day, the Wampanoag people, and more.

Plus, Scholastic culled the Web and tracked down 14 helpful, interesting sites related to the Plymouth Colony, including: 

  • Plimoth Plantation: An informative Web site with information and many illustrations depicting life in the original Plymouth Colony.
  • U.S. Gazetteer: Plymouth, Massachusetts: From this page, either display a map with general census data for this area, or view and download more detailed census tables.
  • NativeWeb Home Page: An excellent site for material on the native peoples of the Western Hemisphere and Australia/Oceania.
