It’s pumpkin spice season! Although I prefer mine in butternut squash soup, rather than coffee or pie, there is no doubt that fall is here.

Pilgrims of Plymouth
Pilgrims of Plymouth Printable(** for Premium Members only)
The Pilgrims were a English Separatist congregation that emigrated to Holland in 1608 to escape religious persecution. Twelve years later, discouraged by economic conditions, the congregation voted to move again, this time to America. A small ship, the Speedwell, carried them to Southampton, England, where they joined another group of Separatists and finally departed from Plymouth, England aboard the Mayflower in 1620.
Pilgrim Hall Museum: Pilgrim Story
The Pilgrim Hall Museum site has oodles of great educational material. Key elements of the Pilgrim story are retold via “stories and in paintings: the Mayflower Compact, the Landing, the First Thanksgiving at Plymouth.” As with all history, these stories are based on facts, but are interpreted through the lens of the era when they were created. “We invite you to search through the layers of retelling to find the foundation of the 17th century. Where does it all begin? And where does it end?”
The Pilgrims and Plymouth Colony: 1620
Although totally without any aesthetic appeal, this well-written study guide about the Pilgrims of the Plymouth Colony deserves a visit. “After two months at sea, the Pilgrims arrived at Cape Cod. Imagine the sight that greeted their eyes on that cold November morning. It was as though they had landed on another planet, a strange, unfriendly place with no signs of civilization-a stark, barren landscape.”
Plimoth Plantation: Just for Kids
“The Englishmen who sailed on the Mayflower were a very unusual mixture of people from many different backgrounds. Some came from big cities like London, others came from small towns and villages in the country.” Listed under Just for Kids in the left-hand menu, you’ll find pilgrim coloring pages, recipes for native dishes such as succotash, homework help, and stories told from a kid’s perspective. The Homework Help section includes articles about the Wampanoag natives, the Mayflower, and the first Thanksgiving.
