Thank you for viewing “Thanksgiving Unit” made by STEVETECH. This unit is filled with activities that will help instruct your students on the voyage of the pilgrims. Students are given electronic resources that they can research from. Once they have completed their interactive research, they have the choice to work on a multitude of activities listed in this document using their computer. Students are given tips and historic facts along the way. Teachers and students can use the notes feature in PowerPoint (the “click to add notes” feature at the bottom of the Power Point for suggestions on the lesson.
The unit is made up of 18 slides. Several slides are for collaboration purposes. Other slides are used to direct the student to choose the type of product they would like to share their research to the rest of their classmates. Students will choose from:
• Wordle clouds
• Comic strip
• And scripts
The lesson comes with an exit ticket, KWL Charts (Slide) and a variety of resources that you and your students can use throughout the unit. Overall, your students will love the options that this unit has compared to some of the cookie cutter activities that other teachers may present to their students. Furthermore, students will enjoy working with each other and create something that will prove to themselves as well as to the rest of the class that they understood the sacrifices that Pilgrims made throughout their journey. While your students are learning about the Pilgrims this year, give them a learning experience that they will value with takeaways they will be eager to share with their parents.
