Take a Virtual Tour of Plimoth Plantation and Learn about the First Thanksgiving

It has been a dream of mine to visit Plimoth Plantation, especially for the Thanksgiving Dinner. I thought I had my husband talked into it one year, but as cool as it sounded, visiting Plimoth Plantation meant that we wouldn’t be visiting our families.

This year, that is going to change. Why? Now we can have the best of both worlds- visit with our families and take a field trip to Plimoth Plantation. Maybe not on Thanksgiving Day, but this November we’ll take a virtual field trip back in time to 1620 to visit the Pilgrims and Wampanoag Indians courtesy of Scholastic via three separate webcasts.

The best part is that you can go, too! 

Just head to Scholastic to sign up for the free virtual field trip to the First Thanksgiving. Here’s a peek at the schedule:

Nov. 2nd tour the Plimoth Fort and Plimoth homes.

Nov. 9th- Visit the Wampanoag home sites

Nov. 16th- Thanksgiving Video webcast replay

All webcasts begin at 1 p.m. EST.

Additional free teacher resources are conveniently offered for all ages to help you prepare for your trip.

Now, who’s traveling with us?


  1. Fun! Thanks so much! We are learning about this now!

  2. The kids and I attended a Virtual Field Trip last year at Plimoth Plantation as well. I'm really looking forward to this year since they've added a few new features- but then again, after last year's field trip I wanted to visit Plimoth Plantation in the worst way! :) Hope your family enjoys the trip!


I love hearing what you think! Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! Blessings!:)
