“Squanto’s Squash” jumps into the history of Thanksgiving with Pilgrims, Native Americans, and more. Squanto’s Squash, Simplified comes in two flavors: lively–with group participation or calmer and shorter–without interruption . The longer, livelier version is perfect to engage a younger crowd, parents, or a larger group of students. The short version is appropriate for smaller groups or more mature students who frown on silliness. Complete with a vocabulary list and annotated curriculum links for easy lesson plans, this free Readers Script is perfect for students in grades 2–3. (This is the SIMPLIFIED version. The original version has a readability of grade 4.5 and is available in our TpT Store: Readers Theater All Year.)
