Spark some lively conversation about American holiday traditions and debunk accepted notions about the first Thanksgiving at the same time. After reviewing the mainstream version of the Thanksgiving story with your class, offer some background information (provided) that incorporates the point of view of the Wampanoag nation. Then partners work together to complete a worksheet in conjunction with the Children's Museum of Boston website (also provided).
