Thanksgiving / Pilgrims Worksheet & Feast Plans
This unit contains a three pages of a read and answer by filling in the blank (cloze activity) worksheets on the basic facts of the Pilgrims first two years in the New World.
After that there is a fun page for cutting & pasting a holiday scene. Lastly there are plans for having a cornbread feast.
The unit contains:
1. A three page read & answer (cloze style) work pages.
2. A thanksgiving vocabulary word hunt. (word search)
4. A key for the word search.
4. A color, cut & paste fun activity. (with model/example page)
5. Detailed plans for a cornbread feast.
The cornbread feast serves several purposes. Many parents like a fall harvest party. This party focuses on corn as a miracle food ONLY found in the "New World" as a "gift" from Native Americans.
The lesson plans for the Cornbread Feast explain:
a. How to make stovepipe hats for boys.
b. How to make bonnets for girls.
c. How to make headbands for Native Americans/Indians.
d. What to buy for a cornbread lesson
e. Lesson points worthy of teaching and discussion.
(The above has been a "hit" every year with my students & parents) It's one party you WON'T feel is an entire waste of valuable class time because there is so much to teach.
