Plimoth Patuxet Museums is dedicated to providing educational resources that bring to life the history of Plymouth Colony and the Indigenous Homeland of Patuxet. Our teacher tools are carefully developed resources that will help you inspire your students to experience history in a new light.
Museum staff are skilled at weaving elements of geography, history, economics, and civics and government into the stories they tell. Studying the stories of our shared past strengthens social and emotional skills. Students understand their own life in the context of history and participate in dialogues across differences to explore how many diverse experiences and perspectives shape our past, present and future.
While a special effort has been made to align our programs with the Massachusetts History and Social Science Frameworks, the Museum’s programs and exhibits are highly relevant to national social studies standards and many state frameworks.
