This fun, hands-on writing packet includes five days of Thanksgiving writing lessons and activities.
Day 1: Students will study and learn about the pilgrims while decorating, illustrating, and writing on their own Mayflower ships (templates included).
Day 2: Students will utilize the brainstorming chart (template included) to learn and write about the hardships the pilgrims endured when they first arrived.
Day 3: Students will learn about Native American cave art and utilize pictographs (templates included) to create their own sentences and stories.
