We've created a fresh, new way for students to learn about Thanksgiving so history can come alive! 1st-3rd grade students participate in four interactive, hands-on, teacher-directed mini lessons and activities.
Each mini-lesson topic includes a lesson plan, teacher script, picture card and corresponding activity.
Lesson #1- The Mayflower: Narrated tableaus
Lesson #2- The First Winter: Pilgrim charades
Lesson #3- Samoset & Squanto: Reader's Theater (differentiated reader's texts included)
Lesson #4- Thanksgiving Feast: Venn Diagram food sort
Students also learn how to play Pilgrim games during Lesson #5!
Your students will LOVE to engage in these lessons and activities while learning the history of Thanksgiving.
Find out more about these Thanksgiving lesson plans on our blog, here.
"Thanksgiving: Self-Directed Learning Stations" is also available in an independent learning format for 4th-6th grade.
