1st Grade Thanksgiving Inquiry

First graders are going to be learning about and researching the First Thanksgiving. They are learning about what it was like to be a pilgrim child, about the journey the pilgrims made on the Mayflower, and about the Native Americans that the pilgrims encountered in the New World.

In the library this week, we are going to work with first graders by teaching them how to use our online databases that are filled with articles and sources about the First Thanksgiving. We are going to use the World Book Online and EBSCOHost.
