You could print, laminate and make them into picture books, or present them as a slide show.  Whatever you decide to do I hope they enhance your Thanksgiving studies in some way. 

The first packet of photographs is of the Mayflower II Click on the link to view/download 22 photographs.

The Mayflower II is a full-size replica of the original ship that really sailed here from Great Britain.  It was a gift to us from that country!  I had an absolute blast boarding the ship and exploring.

New Bedford Mayor Scott Lang gets a rare tour of the ship while it was undergoing routine maintenance in drydock at a Fairhaven shipyard. 

Another awesome video is a quick 3-minute clip that shows some of the live actors that we saw on our trip and gives some more background information.  Click on the link to view The Mayflower II

It debuted on NBC on November 23, 1968. The special is about a mouse named Willum.

They purposely spelled their park this way, because there were no spelling rules in the 17th century and they felt that this would have been the way the Pilgrims would have spelled the word.

For an excellent virtual fieldtrip of this intriguing place click on the link above.  Plimoth Plantation has partnered with Scholastic and in 2012 they expanded the Thanksgiving Virtual Field Trip.  Click on the link to view the newest additions.  Scholastic also released a 2-minute video featuring Goodwife Hopkins answering questions.

    Thank you. Thank you. I already used the Mouse on the Mayflower but the other items are great.

    Hi,
    Thank you so much for the Mayflower II photos and Plimouth Plantation links. Visiting the town of Plymouth, the Mayflower II and the Plantation & Wampanoag Village was a peak experience for me a few years ago. I didn't want to leave. I know my students will love the virtual field trip to Plimouth Plantation. As we are in California, not many of them will see it in person. Thanks again for the great links and resources. Happy Thanksgiving!

    Thank you for the great pics. I was searching to find some this year, and found that many I wouldn't want to show. You have just made my lessons a lot more interesting!
