Product Description
For our school's Thanksgiving Presentation, I had our middle schoolers present a series of excerpts about memories of past Thanksgiving celebrations. This tied in to our history curriculum (US History) as well as our focus on primary sources and documents.

Included here are seven excerpts from primary sources:
1) 1621 account - First Thanksgiving
2) 1789 account - George Washington proclamation
3) 1800s account - settlers on the prairie
4) 1863 account - Sarah Josepha Hale, establishment of national holiday
5) 1873 account - pioneer farmer
6) 1917 account - World War I rationing
7) 1943 account - World War II sailor

I have divided it up into 37 roles, with each student reading a few sentences off of a notecard. (it can be combined/divided up in many different ways). We practiced this with a brief unit on public speaking skills (looking at your audience, standing up straight, projecting your voice, etc.)
