PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product's creation was inspired by my students who call Thanksgiving "Turkey Day" and have absolutely forgotten why we celebrate the holiday in the first place. It started with a Reading Informational text, but over the course of a couple of years it has developed into an entire unit. The unit is aligned with the common core and includes development of Tier 2 vocabulary, reading informational texts, writing and language skills, and a piece that brings in technology (it is optional).
The Thanksgiving Unit includes:
4 printable Reading Informational texts
Comprehension Questions (printables) to go with each text plus one that covers all the texts
Vocabulary building activity
Writing descriptive sentences activity
Extended Writing activity
2 different Thanksgiving games: Thanksgiving categories and a Thanksgiving Chain Game
The teacher guide includes notes, the answer key for all activities, and the CCSS aligned by task. It is a very flexible unit and can be used in a multitude of ways! If you work through all of the tasks, it will take 2-3 weeks. Enjoy it.
