This quiz contains vocabulary words targeted at seventh and eighth grade students. While the activity is Thanksgiving themed, not all of fifteen of the words are "traditional" holiday vocabulary. You won't find "cornucopia" on this quiz, but you will find "trepidation", which was likely felt by both the Native Americans and Pilgrims-and it still felt by many today, but for different reasons. The quiz also provides a space for students to use the vocabulary words in a short story written from the perspective of either a Native American or Pilgrim at the first Thanksgiving. A list of words with definitions and a key are included with the quiz.
