Thanksgiving Through the Lens of Native Americans Today: Lesson Plan
In this lesson plan for grades 6-12, students will learn about the meaning of Thanksgiving through the lens of today’s Wampanoag people, the ancestors of the Native American tribes who welcomed the Pilgrims at Plymouth nearly 400 years ago. Then students will examine current issues facing the Wampanoags, including the continued fight for their ancestral lands and the preservation of their native language.
