This is a file of 4 Thanksgiving story starters for creative writing. Each writing prompt gives a short Thanksgiving themed scenario and then there are two pages of lines for the students to write the rest of the story. There is also some cute Thanksgiving themed clip art throughout. The story starters include a turkey who is running away from the farmer, a family who is surprised by a flock of turkeys on Thanksgiving, a Pilgrim child getting ready for the Thanksgiving feast, and a Native American child on their way to the feast. These could be used in a variety of ways: writing workshops, center work, independent work, or as a fun Thanksgiving activity or display!
