THANKSGIVING READING, VOCABULARY AND MUCH MORE
9 PRINTABLES with ANSWER KEYS
1. Thanksgiving Reading: This is a 2 page history on Thanksgiving.
2. Vocabulary Exercises (3 pages): Matching, Fill in the Blanks and Correct the Sentences. These vocabulary exercises include words like celebrate, immigrant, hunt, harvest, Pilgrims, Native Americans, feast, freedom, cranberry etc.
3. Sequence Strip Story: Students will cut apart the strips, put them in order and then paste them on a separate piece of paper. This may be challenging for some students. At first I let my students struggle for a few minutes and then I tell them that they can use the reading to help them. It is also beneficial to have them work together in pairs for this activity. The more advanced students can help the ones that need more help.
4. WH Question Words: Making Information Question
Students will make information questions using the WH Question Words (who, what, when, why, how, how many etc.) Students will first read the answer to the question. The underlined word in the sentence will indicated which WH question word the students will need to use to write the correct question.
The Pilgrims lived in England.
Students need to write the question “Who lived in England?”
5. Thanksgiving Fact or Opinion: Students will read the 12 statements about Thanksgiving. Then, they will write F if the statement if a fact. They will write O if the statement is an opinion.
