Read aloud a book about the history of Thanksgiving (pilgrims and indians). Give each student a worksheet, pipe cleaner, and colored beads. Then, have your students make a bracelet to retell the Thanksgiving story. Each colored bead represents a different part of the story. This worksheet guides the students through the process by telling them what each colored bead represents and what order to put the beads on the bracelet. After the students are finished making the bracelet, they can practice retelling the Thanksgiving story to their peers as well as to their parents at home.
