This packet includes everything you need to make your Thanksgiving Unit come to life. It includes student readers, interactive notebook pages, crafts, activities and more.
It goes into depth explaining both the Pilgrims and the Wampanoags.
In the Pilgrim section students will read about the Pilgrims, why they left England, what life was like on the Mayflower and what life was like when they landed in Massachusetts. Through interactive notebook pages, students will respond to what they are learning.
This packet starts with 11 pages that detail the voyage of the Pilgrims. These can be used in a fluency center or used as a teacher read aloud. You also could laminate them and turn it into a book to keep in your library!
Students will learn so much about the Pilgrims with this packet.
It includes 18 Pilgrim vocabulary cards and 4 games that you can play with them. This will help students use the correct terms when talking about the Pilgrims.
