Build a Pilgrim House Thanksgiving STEM Activity

Build a Pilgrim House Thanksgiving STEM Activity


Learn about Pilgrims with this hands-on Thanksgiving STEM Challenge where students build a Pilgrim Home!

Students learn to work cooperatively in small groups or on their own as they explore how a Pilgrim house was made back in the 1600's.

A reading passage and questions are included to help students understand how pilgrim houses were made.

Students plan, design, and execute their own ideas. After they have completed their activity, there is time for reflection on what worked and what didn't.

Aligns with the NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards).
