You Are the Historian: Investigating the First Thanksgiving from
is an excellent website filled with great information about the Plimoth Plantation in Plymouth Massachusetts. Since we are a week away from celebrating Thanksgiving in the United States I thought this would be a good time to share the site. One part of the site I would like to share is the You Are a Historian investigation. Here you can learn about both the pilgrim and the Wampanoag.

I would suggest you download the web based program to use in class or at home. I am sure that this site will be extremely hard to access for the next week. You can click here to download it. After you unzip it (double click on it) drag out the folder onto your desktop. Go into the folder and open up the webpage that says Start_Here. The page will open up in your default web browser and it will run off your computer. No need to install or to fight slow internet access!

Thank you for allowing your students to talk to ours, and that being the first time that we have been online and had a Skype Chat with another classroom in a different part of the world. Really appreciated it and enjoyed it. Cleveland will put a link to his Hip Hop dancing videos online shortly.
