Big List of Pilgrim Resources for Homeschool

Several years back we studied the Pilgrims for a long time. We just got stuck on this time period because it was so fascinating to read about these people who risked everything and suffered for a cause many of them would never even come to see to fruition. Amazing testimony of faith. Our studies culminated with a trip to Plymouth, MA to visit Plimoth Plantation and the Mayflower. It was truly amazing. With Thanksgiving upon us, here are some resources to learn about the Pilgrims.

One of the best things we ever did was visit Plimoth Plantation in Plymouth, MA. We visited late September when the crowds were gone and the weather is perfect. I highly recommend visiting if you can. After learning about the Pilgrims, when we actually visited Plimoth Plantation, it was amazing to step back in time and visit life there.
