Great academic Thanksgiving activities for many contents.
This fall product has six texts (four short articles, two 2-page articles, and a chart), embedded comprehension questions, and a page of fun at the end! These articles could easily be used in a science, ELA, or social studies class.
Besides the articles, seven supplemental pages of reproducible activities are included, such as practice reading charts, making graphs, and answering inferential questions. You could easily get 3 – 5 days of lessons from this one product, more if the students annotate the articles. The lessons are even friendly to follow should you need plans for a substitute. All articles are current, original and nonfiction/ informational text.
