This Magic Tree House "Fact Tracker" Research Guide is an awesome resource for elementary age students. It tells the story of the Pilgrims from the boarding of the Mayflower in 1620, to 1661, when the Mayflower sailed back to England (with no pilgrims on board). It focuses on the lifestyle of the Pilgrims, but tells a lot about the Native Americans they interacted with and their lifestyles as well. I like this book because it gives a lot of information that students of any age can learn from (I ...more
This is a fascinating look at the Pilgrims, filled with information about their voyage, their life during first few years in the New World and the leaders who were most remembered. We have an ancestor from the Mayflower, and although he wasn't profiled in this book, I think our girls could understand a little bit about him. It was a refreshing change to read about the Pilgrims in a book that's not a romanticized, incorrect version of history. Too often you see books that depict the Pilgrims in t ...more

This 120 page easy chapter book is from the Magic Tree House Research Guide series and is intended as a nonfiction companion to the fictional book, Thanksgiving on Thursday. It has seven chapters, including a detailed chapter on the Wampanoag, which gives much background information on this tribe of Native Americans that had been in North America already for thousands of years. Illustrations are black and white drawings. Charts and diagrams are included, for example labeled drawings of the insid ...more
This non-fiction companion to "Thanksgiving On Thursday," (from the Magic Tree House Series) is an excellent way to teach children about the Pilgrims, why they came to this land, their journey here, and their efforts to settle here. The Wampanoag people, the native people who already lived here when the Pilgrims arrived, and who were instrumental in helping the Pilgrims survive, are also introduced. The first Thanksgiving, the food they ate (which is, in some respects, very different from what w ...more

I actually learned a lot about pilgrims. I learned what the children pilgrims did, I learned what they did, and what they wore. It was a great book. I hope to read another book just like that. It was really exciting. I really enjoyed reading it. And I also learned what it meant to them having them leave their homes. I give this book four stars. It really was a amazing story about the pilgrims.
In this book, Annie and Jack are given the opportunity to travel back in time where they meet Indians and Pilgrims as well as gain an understanding of the difficult life during that period. I would use this book to incorporate literature with social studies as well as the holiday, Thanksgiving!
The pilgrims research guide was very good. the book was about the pilgrims from the year 1620-1691. One of the most interesting thing that i learned was how they built houses.
This was a great book for my 3rd grader. Not too much information, not too juvenile. Just right.
john carver was the first leader of the pilgrims. william bradford was the second.
how they found the information about the pilgrims and their way of life
milking is a nice way to get butter.
I read this series in elementary school
