The "Journey of a Pilgrim"- An Original Poem - Includes questions. This Pilgrim poem can be used as a Thanksgiving activity or really anytime. This poem was written with 4th graders in mind, but it can be used with more advanced third graders or weaker fifth grade readers. Please use your best judgement.
Included in this pack is an original poem written by me, including factual information about the Pilgrims and the First Thanksgiving.
Please click on the preview above to get a better idea of what is included.
In addition to the poem, there is skill sheet of 13 text dependent questions dealing with vocabulary, explicit information, and more.
I have also added a piece of themed writing paper titled 'Diary of a Pilgrim" in case you would like to connect this to writing.
This pack uses the same original poem written by me that can be found in my other pack called "Journey of a Pilgrim". It can be found by clicking
. I'm telling you that because if you already have the other pack, this may or may not be something you want to purchase.
What makes this different from the other one? This one uses a full sized poem, where the other one is designed for interactive notebooks using half sheets. The other one has an interactive flippable with questions, and the other one uses a full page question sheet.
