Celebrate the holidays with Thanksgiving with the Pilgrims! This informative six-week micro-study will not only span the centuries but the holidays as well! Students take November to learn about the Pilgrims and the first Thanksgiving. Then they spend the first two weeks of December learning about the Puritans and some Victorian inspired Christmas traditions. Don’t get the connection? Don’t worry. You will!
For an in-depth study of the origins of our classic American Christmas traditions see our Christmas Comes to America Once-a-Week Unit Study.
