The Pilgrims

In our Pilgrims lesson plan, students learn about the Pilgrims who came to the United States, including their daily lives and where they lived. Students also learn related vocabulary.

Our The Pilgrims lesson plan engages students with information to define pilgrim and describes life for those who came to America. Explore the modern day pilgrimages people embark on to reinforce the concept of pilgrims and engage idea sharing as students reflect on what they would have enjoyed most and least if living in 1621. During this lesson, students are asked to color in Pilgrim-related pictures and fill in the blanks with the correct words or phrases in given sentences. Students are also asked to match terms with their correct definitions in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define pilgrim and describe life for the Pilgrims who came to America.

    Excellent Resource for Massachusetts SS teachers!!

    I was just thrown into teaching 3rd grade SS remotely halfway through the year with ZERO resources. This provides grade appropriate information, and the activity pages are "just enough". It's the best thing I've found yet....without shelling out more $$$.

    Perfect for ESL adults

    The materials were clearly laid out and full of accurate historical information. The grade level was perfect for my English language adult learners.

    These are awesome!!! I can not thank you enough for having these! I work with special ed and some of my kids can not do the grade level work and this gives them great options to learn the same things but on their level!
