This packet includes 4 common core aligned reading informational texts and 6 different "questions for consideration" printables about Thanksgiving. **These are included in my Thanksgiving Unit.** The texts cover the first Thanksgiving, our modern day Thanksgiving, Thanksgiving controversies, and Thanksgiving fact and figures. The texts include tier 2 vocabulary words and the included printables over EACH of the texts cover skills such as vocabulary, close reading, compare/ contrast, main idea, details, citing evidence, and more. The texts/ tasks are aligned to the CCSS and the standards are included in the packet (as is an answer key). These would work well for a literacy center, in small groups, and as a jumping off point for classroom discussions!
