Internet Browsing On Thanksgiving

The Mukwonago Community Library wishes everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! On this turkey day if you find yourself browsing the internet we have a few suggestions of websites you can visit to keep the Thanksgiving theme.

Websites for Children:

Plimoth Plantation Museum
This website has a special interactive lesson for young children K-6 that will teach them about the original Thanksgiving. Take a peak inside a Colonial English settler’s cottage and learn about the Wampanoag Indians that helped them survive their first winter.

Scholastic’s Mayflower Tour
This is a great website for K-6 children to take an inside look of the Mayflower. Also peak around to see what was served at the first feast and learn about the Pilgrims' daily life.

Websites for Everyone:

Hulu Presents: A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving
Hulu is a free website and trustworthy website that allows you to watch television and movies at home on your computer. A perfect holiday treat is watching A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving with your family.

The History Channel’s Thanksgiving
The History Channel’s website has a great background on Thanksgiving history and short videos on subjects like the Mayflower, Pilgrims, and even pumpkin pie!

Watch the Macy’s Day Parade Online

NBC is posting the Macy’s Day Parade online.
