Virtual field trips are an excellent online resource for visiting sites that would otherwise be out of reach.

And that’s not all! To promote a better understanding of the lives of the native peoples and colonists, use Scholastic’s comparison pages.

For students with reading disabilities or those who learn best by seeing what they hear, these resources-and more- are an excellent tool for exploring our nation’s Thanksgiving holiday.
