    --Thanksgiving WebQuest ( 32 pages including keys)

    This is a printable booklet about the First Thanksgiving. Your students will need to access this website:

    This is a wonderful resource. I have used it for years. The children love being able to navigate it on their own, but aren't so crazy about just doing a regular old worksheet so, I created a booklet that corresponds to this website.

    It is fun and educational. The students will have to reread, listen to text, and comprehend nonfiction text in order to complete the booklet. It is interesting!

    Because the website allows children to listen to the text, all children can be successful on this assignment. It also promotes independence as well as differentiation.

    This is a wonderful technology based activity to do the week of Thanksgiving!

    It includes:

    - Decorative Cover Page

    - Student Booklet Cover Page

    - The Mayflower Reading and Comprehension/Following Directions Page

    - Daily Life Housing Page (Comparison of Pilgrims & Wampanoag)

    ---Student Made 2017 Calendar Christmas Gift for Parents ( 57 pages - tons of variety)

    UPDATED every year!! Super easy with tons of options!

    Print this packet for each child. It includes a writing activity for each month of the 2017 year. I recommend printing the pages so that they are back to back. When you open the calendar, the writing for the month will be above the calendar for that month.

    The children can decorate and color each month's calendar. They can even add special dates or just leave it blank.

    You can use your school's binding machine to connect the pages to create a calendar! You could also punch holes and connect the pages with ribbon. No matter how you present it, it will be an economical, fun, and creative project for your students and a nice gift for the parents.

    ** There are two different versions of the prompt pages: No lines for PreK and K so they can draw pictures, and lined pages for 1st grade and up so they can write and draw a picture!

    **Canadian pages have been added for October, November, and a page for Canadian Day in July.
