Free Educational Resources-Pilgrims

First, from Homeschool Freebie of the Day, the first of a three part serialization of the classic children's book "Pilgrim Stories", by Margaret Pumphrey. Part is entitled "Pilgrim Stories, Book I: From Old Homes to New", and introduces us to the pilgrims and the beginnings of their great journey.
This freebie will be available throught the end of the week.

Next, from Google Book Search, "Mary of Plymouth: A Story of the Pilgrim Settlement" by James Otis, published in 1910. Written from a child's point of view, this classic children's book tells about the joys and hardships the Pilgrims faced the first ten years in the New World.

Who were the first settlers in America?
Here is a database of Pilgrim ship lists from the early 1600's, over 7100 families and 250 ships.

And finally a couple of educational websites about the Mayflower and Plymouth, Mass.
