Product Description

Every year, as a history teacher, I struggle with my students thinking they know the REAL story of Thanksgiving. A story that typically involves native Americans and "Pilgrims" sitting down and sharing a meal together. I wanted to make sure my students knew about the REAL story of Thanksgiving. How the English settlers of Plymouth took land from the Wamponoag, joined sides with them to fight what became known as the Pequot Wars and the "Thanksgiving" meal that follwed essentially celebrating a massacre of the local Narragansett.

This resource attempts to try and bridge the two stories and make sure students are aware of the TRUTH. Students will watch a video that shares the general History of Thanksgiving. Next, students will then read an article that details the actual story behind the Plymouth settlers and the Wamponoag and what led to the Pequot Wars. 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!
