In 2014, Plimoth Patuxet Museums provided an inspirational setting for American Experience and filmmaker Ric Burns to produce The Pilgrims, a full-length documentary exploring the early histories of Plymouth Colony and Wampanoag Patuxet. Along with the film, the Museum worked with the team at PBS Learning Media to develop a series of classroom resources including background essays, activities, and questions that engage students in the documentary’s key themes and historical questions. These resources are available for free online at the PBS Learning Media website. Some of our favorites include lessons and video clips exploring the Mayflower Compact, the alliance with Massasoit and the First Thanksgiving, and plague in Native New England (1616-1619).
