If your homeschool is like ours, there are several topics that you and your children study and learn about each year. We usually study the Pilgrims each year in the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving. It is a great opportunity to study American history!
Many years ago (2013!), I published a worksheet packet focusing on the Pilgrims at Plymouth. It was in need of an overhaul, so I have spent a bit of time updating the graphics, fonts, and layout of this worksheet set. I have also included a few new activities.
If you have purchased this worksheet set in the past, please log into your account and download the newest version!
➡ Take a peek at our tried-and-true Favorite Books About Thanksgiving. I have read and vetted each one for our homeschool reading.
Check out a few books about Pilgrims, download this packet, and off you go!

Pilgrim Thanksgiving Worksheet Packet
These worksheets are quite versatile for a variety of ages and stages. Older children can complete them independently, while younger children might need to sit beside mom to complete them.
Choose the worksheets that are the best fit for your children, and take the freedom to set aside the ones that won’t be beneficial. When you homeschool, you are the boss! 🙂

Christy, clear the history in your browser and that should do the trick! Email me if it doesn’t. mama AT mamaslearnigncorner DOT com 😉
I have tried and tried to download numerous packets and have had no luck.I have also commented in the past and received no response. Please help.

Hi Darlene! I sent you an email earlier this morning on how to access your packet. Let me know if you have further issues. 🙂
Good afternoon! 🙂 I purchased this packet, but I can’t find anywhere to download it. Can you please help me. Thank you. I did us a different email for my paypal account. I don’t know if that matters or not.
Please disregard my comment. I was able to find it. 🙂
Hi! I am a member and cannot seem to get this worksheet packet at all, despite the fact I am logged in. There is no “download” button anywhere that I see on the page. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
I’m so sorry for your frustration. 🙁 Last January, I did away with the Members Only section on my site (which was a paid membership). Now, all of those packets are available for purchase. You’ll see the purchase button at the bottom of each post that contains a paid packet.
Please let me know if you have further questions! I’m happy to help you.
Oh – and if you’re looking for a free Thanksgiving packet for your children, you can download that packet here: http://www.mamaslearningcorner.com/history-of-thanksgiving/
But it’s not nearly as comprehensive as the paid one.
Thank you! 🙂 Have a blessed Thanksgiving!
In fact, I have a very hard time downloading any of your member-only packets. It is frustrating. What am I doing wrong?? (and thank you for all your hard work…our family has been very blessed by your worksheets!)
And I’m so glad your family has been blessed by the worksheets! I appreciate that kind comment. 🙂
I forgot to leave my email address if you have further issues: mama (at) mamaslearningcorner (dot) com
Oh, thanks. I guess I’m a little behind if I didn’t even realize you don’t do a members only thing anymore! I was confused because it still allowed me to login. Anyway, thanks again. Happy Thanksgiving:)
