Product Description
Looking for a fun, yet informative, way to teach your class about Thanksgiving? Better yet, do you need to fill in those 2 days before Thanksgiving break?
This TWO DAY lesson is perfect for you!

Day 1 consists of reading and exploring through critical thinking questions to inform our students about what the First Thanksgiving was like and why it even happened.

Day 2 we review what we learned on Day 1 and expand on symbolism and why it's important. We then talk about symbolism with different holidays, including Thanksgiving. This ties into our activity where students get to design their own turkey!

Included:
“National Geographic Kids!: The History of Thanksgiving” article
“National Geographic Kids! The History of Thanksgiving
Questions”
Cardboard shapes (1 big circle, 1 little circle, 1 triangle, 5 long oval shapes)
