This is an interact website that teaches students about what really happened before and during the first Thanksgiving.  It explains things from the perspective of the settlers and the Wampanoag.  This is an extensive collection of videos, photographs, interviews, timelines, reinactments, and more.  The students will learn about the Mayflower, the daily activities, foods, games, clothing, etc.  There are lesson plans provided for grades K-2, 3-5, and 6-8. This would be great to show around Thanksgiving time to help dispell some of the myths associated with Thanksgiving.  It would also be a great example to use when teaching a lesson on point of view.
