We've created a fresh, new way for students to learn about Thanksgiving! We're calling these lesson plans, "Thanksgiving: A Living Story" because 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
Your students will LOVE to engage in these lessons and activities while becoming part of Thanksgiving's "living story."

"Thanksgiving: A Living Story" is also available in an independent learning station version for 4th-6th grade.
