PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Are you looking for a way to tie in Thanksgiving with your literature or history unit? Try this fun activity that allows students to practice great critical and creative thinking skills.
It includes a writing prompt for both a character from a story or novel and one for a historical figure.

This is great for a bell-ringer, exit-slip, or journal-writing activity; or have them write even more and tell an entire story. I included several different printables. To save paper, you can project it and have them use their own journals or notebooks.

Aligned with the Common Core Standards for writing (#10) at multiple grade levels.
