Description

Learn the history of Thanksgiving in Canada while exploring main idea, supporting details, important/interesting, and other comprehension reading strategies as well as organizational structure for expository writing. Students will also have the chance to do some Thanksgiving themed writing and gratitude activities.

The reading activities and writing prompts now come in Google Slides versions so they can be used for distance learning.

This turkey filled product includes:

  • lesson plans and reading activities for each reading passage.
  • an expository reading passage of a family's traditions at Thanksgiving (comes with a Google Slides version).
  • a nonfiction reading passage in two different reading levels (low/high) about the origins of Canadian Thanksgiving (comes with a Google Slides version).
  • a recipe reading passage with questions and creative writing activity (comes with a Google Slides version).
  • 15 writing prompts with Thanksgiving themes in persuasive, expository and narrative genres (comes with a Google Slides version).
  • additional writing activities (these are not digital, but can be easily modified) including poetry, gratitude activities and a simple hyperbole activity.
  • a turkey colouring and writing activity (not digital).
  • Thanksgiving themed writing papers.
  • student pages.
  • suggested answer keys.

Though this lesson uses Canadian spellings and features an article about the history of Canadian Thanksgiving, the reading and writing skills are general enough to be used in ANY country that wants to learn about Canadian Thanksgiving.
