Product Description
Every year, as a history teacher, I struggle with Thanksgiving...Which version to we share with our students? The "traditional" Pilgrim version, or the real Native American story of what led to the "First Thanksgiving".

This resource attempts to try and bridge the two. Students will watch a video that shares the general History of Thanksgiving. Next, students will read 2 different perspectives on Thanksgiving, one from a primary source from Edward Winslow and the other from a descendant of the Wampanoag. They will then complete a comparison activity in which they compare the 2 viewpoints. Finally, they will read a primary source from Sarah J Hale on how Thanksgiving became a national holiday.

I hope that you and your students get as much out of this activity as my students do-Enjoy!
