This is a great way to teach Drawing Conclusions with a little Thanksgiving fun! This lesson's activities follow the gradual release model.
This PowerPoint allows for the teacher to model drawing conclusions using text evidence and prior-knowledge.
Students will work with a partner to read a fun Thanksgiving themed text and complete the graphic organizer to help them draw a conclusion. After practice, students will be given one more fun themed text to show what they have learned.
This .zip file contains a PowerPoint with highlighting, a PowerPoint with underlining (some past issues with highlighting on different versions of PowerPoint), and PDF version of the lesson. The PowerPoint has been saved as "Read Only" so you will not be able to modify it. When prompted for a password, simply click "Read Only" and you will be able to access the PowerPoint presentation. I have also provided it in PDF in case you would like to import it into a Interactive Whiteboard/Activboard Flipchart. Graphic Organizer is formatted for easy printing.
