This unit is far from being a "complete" unit about the Pilgrims

but it is a start to help you in creating your own unit study.


This unit easily leads to a Thanksgiving unit study.


This is the reason why you will find some

resources about Thanksgiving.







If you do not have any of the books mentioned...

Use what you have on hand and/or go to the library.


 If this unit helps you in any way or if you have some

comments about it, feel free to email me.
