One million kids to ‘visit’ Plimoth Plantation virtually next week
By Tyler on November 8th, 2010
If you teach elementary school, there’s a good chance you’re about to start (or you have already!) a unit about “The First Thanksgiving.”
The story of the Pilgrims’ voyage to America and their first interactions with the Wampanoags is so widely taught in U.S. schools that a special collection of activities and resources Scholastic makes available on Scholastic.com every year is among the site’s most highly trafficked sections.
This year we’re offering something special — a chance for students from across the country to visit historic Plimoth Plantation together on the same day. Scholastic is filming and hosting a live, webcasted “virtual field trip” to Plimoth on November 16th at 1 p.m. (EST), and we’re already expecting more than 1 MILLION students will participate.
