PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Thanksgiving Writing
This journal combines engaging prompts with historical facts to get kids learning and thinking about the first Thanksgiving, the Pilgrims and the Native Americans.
It also includes a cover (which can be colored by the students), lined paper to print on the back of each prompt, and a writing checklist.

Use the journal as morning work, in a writing center or even homework during the month of November.

The topics include:
• Thanksgiving Traditions
• What a Feast
• Leaving Home
• I am Grateful
• A Friend Like Squanto
• Life of a Pilgrim Boy
• Life of a Pilgrim Girl
• A Thank You Letter
• Life on the Mayflower
• Life of a Wampanoag Child

An example prompt: Life of a Pilgrim Boy: Life was not always fun and easy for a Pilgrim boy. A boy spent most of his day working, rather than playing. Boys had to learn to plant and harvest crops and hunt and fish. They also had to help the family with many important tasks, such as gathering wood for fires or fetching water for cooking. There were no schools, so children learned to read and write at home.

Do you think you would you like to be a Pilgrim boy? Why
or why not? How is your life different from the life of a Pilgrim boy? Are there any similarities?
