This "First Thanksgiving" resource was designed to help your students get a true picture of the similarities and differences between life "then" and "now". Includes story, sorting cards, and comparison posters.
A simple story that compares the life of the Pilgrims with the life of Americans today. It also compares and contrasts the first Thanksgiving with common Thanksgiving traditions of today. The story is offered in a full color version, perfect for your classroom library. It is also offered in a 1/2 page, black and white version. This smaller booklet is perfect for students to color and read.
Sorting cards are provided with two heading options ("Then..." and "Now.." & "Long Ago..." and "Today...). 18 colorful, "cartoon style" sorting cards and 20 high resolution photograph cards are provided.
10 full page posters compare "then" and "now" with clear, high resolution photographs. These posters are available with an attractive black background and with an ink-friendly white background (for a total of 20 posters).
I hope your students enjoy these activists as much as we have enjoyed them in my classroom!
