Looking for Thanksgiving activities
to develop students inquiry skills? Using online resources to go on a virtual field trip, students compare and contrast the lives of Pilgrims and Native Americans during Readers' Workshop. Students explain their understanding of the topics being studied by creating videos or storyboards, if no technology is available.
During Writer's Workshop, use Thanksgiving crafts and recipes to teach students about procedural text structure. These Thanksgiving writing activities allow students to prepare themselves for researching games and tools Native Americans and Pilgrims used in order to have fun. While in groups, students will choose one of the games or tools they are interested in, research and then teach the students how to make or play the game using their understanding of procedural text.
Technology is not required to teach this unit but it will be more fun.
