With Thanksgiving right around the corner it's a good time for a history lesson. The best way to inform students about what life was like in 1620 is to take virtual field trips and view reenactments and primary sources from that time. The folks at Scholastic have a great set of goodies to use with your interactive whiteboard. You can visit Plimoth Plantation, watch videos, learn about the Mayflower, read historic letters, and so on. Check it out - I've linked it here.
Enjoy the feast!
