Product Description
Thanksgiving Authors Purpose Activities. I was looking for a lesson that was suitable for my students, as well as motivational and TAUGHT about Thanksgiving (I originally created a similar lesson for Veterans Day). I found that my students needed additional work with the skill, not to mention that they really enjoyed it, so I created this lesson for Thanksgiving.
Students will be required to determine whether or not what was written on a Thanksgiving theme, (what I researched) was written to inform a reader, persuade a reader or entertain a reader, and why they believe it is such in one to two sentences. Vocabulary of inform, persuade and entertain may need to be reviewed for this lesson.
For this lesson, I additionally included a response sheet, so you can make a couple of packets up and then have them record their responses on the sheet provided (as to not consume too much ink and paper!)
You will also find that this lesson provides valuable information regarding what Pilgrim and Native American children activities, information about Pilgrim and Native American women, information about headdresses, etc.
