The Thanksgiving Dinner project is the obvious answer. Select a whole menu or just a favorite recipe and price the cost of the ingredients to figure our the price of a Thanksgiving dinner. Lots of variations on that. At this late date, you might want to pick a recipe or menu yourself and do the pricing unless your kids would have easy computer access to grocery prices.

Colonial Williamsburg has a connection to a collection of lessons. I like this one but didn't have to teach in a time when facts were considered by some to be unpatriotic.
You'd have to judge your own teaching situation. https://resourcelibrary.history.org/sites/default/files/UnlockingtheSecretsofMyths_0.pdf

This is a straightforward reading lesson about the Pilgrims with a graphic organizer.
