Help your students understand the meaning of the holiday Thanksgiving with these two worksheets. The first worksheet is a Thanksgiving Acrostic poem. After reviewing some basic First Thanksgiving facts and leading a discussion about thankfulness, lead your students in brainstorming phrases that describe Thanksgiving. The acrostic poem can be teacher directed, or an independent activity. The second page is a beginnner's paragraph writing worksheet. Students can write about things they are thankful for, while learning how to create a 5 sentence paragraph. Transition words are provided, as well as the topic sentence and closing sentence. All students have to do is complete the three detail sentences about things they are thankful for.
