Do you need a more independent activity for your learning support students for the Thanksgiving holiday? Do you need something more than just a basic writing activity? Are your students motivated by using and exploring websites? This is the Thanksgiving project for you!
Included you will find a guided packet taking students through this website: https://www.plimoth.org/sites/default/files/media/olc/intro.html
This is a wonderful site from the Plimoth Plantation which is a Smithsonian Institution Affiliations Program. The interactive website takes students on a journey as historians to explore the myths of Thanksgiving using primary documentation.
I have created a guided packet for students with reading and writing difficulty (I used this with 7th graders reading on a 2nd-3rd grade level; I would put this at grade level 5-8 based on interest and 3-4 based on academic level). There are specific questions for each section of the website along with a compare/contrast chart and a rubric grade for each section. The total value of the entire packet is 50 points.
Included is a a 4-page pdf file.
