This Thanksgiving Day lesson plan utilizes the book, Thank You, Sarah The Woman Who Saved Thanksgiving by Laurie Halse Anderson to engage students in making inferences using informational text. Activity packets and a teacher guide is included with possible responses. This is an excellent, cooperative group activity as well to encourage quality dialogue among students. In addition, students create a Help Wanted Ad based on desirable character traits for someone to save Thanksgiving based on text evidence. This lesson is written for fifth grade common core, but can be adapted for grades 4-8.
