Cool Mom Picks suggested some sites to help teach your kids about the origins of Thanksgiving. For older kids there is Thanksgiving Interactive: You are the Historian from the Plimoth Plantation. Kids can play the role of detective as they determine what really happened at the first Thanksgiving in 1621.
A second is from the go-to site for educational videos, Brain Pop. However, you have to subscribe to view their great pieces. It is $99 per year, but it is a great option for homeschoolers or other families who want to supplement their children’s education on a wide range of topics. (I’m hoping the Thanksgiving video will be the free one of the day on the actual holiday.)
Third is the good ol’ classic from Schoolhouse Rock — “No More Kings.” Enjoy!
