This Thanksgiving comic strip writing activity features Pilgrims preparing for Thanksgiving dinner while the turkeys try to avoid being the main course. Help students develop their narrative creative writing skills (CCRA.W.3) and practice writing dialogue (W.3.3b, W.4.3b, W.5.3b) with these 7 comic strip mini-stories featuring Pilgrims and turkeys in funny Thanksgiving situations. This set of Thanksgiving -themed comic strips with Pilgrims and turkeys has 7 full-page comic strip mini-stories. Each of the 7 full-page comic strip mini-stories comes in a full-color version and a blackline version.
This is the perfect Thanksgiving writing activity for engaging reluctant writers! The strips have blank speech and thought bubbles for students to write in. Students can also draw/color/design their own settings and other details.
These Thanksgiving writing comic strip mini-stories feature full-color and blackline images from Ron Leishman Digital Toonage on TPT.
Ideas for use:
Give students a set of vocabulary or spelling words they must use.
Assign a character trait and have students make a character demonstrate that trait.
After students finish comic strips, have them re-write the dialogue in paragraph form with appropriate punctuation (quotations marks, commas). Example: "I'm not the Thanksgiving turkey! I'm the chef!" insisted the turkey.
Choose a theme (moral of the story, life lesson) and have students create a comic strip modeling that theme.
Just for fun:
Inside recess, early finishers, etc.
