Lesson Plan

Pilgrim and Wampanoag Daily Life for Grades 3-5

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

Thirteen steps make up a lesson that challenges pupils to compare and contrast the daily lives of Pilgrims and the Wampanoag tribe. Learners revisit the Graffiti Wall then break into small groups for an investigative reading assignment in which participants gather information, discuss their findings, and complete a Venn diagram. Scholars look further into the Wampanoag culture then complete a multiple-choice quiz.

Instructional Ideas
  • Post assessment questions on a classroom blog
  • Conduct a grand conversation regarding class members' answers to the short answer question
  • Provide additional information about the relationship between Pilgrims and the Wampanoag tribe
Classroom Considerations
  • The second lesson of three examines the first Thanksgiving
  • Requires copies of handouts, art supplies, and devices with internet access
  • Offers optional setups
  • Provides ideas to extend the lesson
  • The lesson is mostly one-sided and does not cover the full truth of the relationship between Pilgrims and Native Americans
