(WARNING) This activity is not for the faint of heart!
This activity challenges the traditional ideas of Thanksgiving as historians uncover some of the myths...
Students will learn about where the real first Thanksgiving occurred, what the Pilgrims called themselves, what food was really severed, and who was allowed to attend AND did not attend the first Thanksgiving.
Check for student understanding with 7 close reading questions.
I have also included an extension activity where students analyze a traditional Thanksgiving painting and discuss how it does or does not reflect the facts from this handout.
