These four writing process prompts may help students develop the ability to write a few different types of paragraphs in response to the historical fiction picture book, The Thanksgiving Story by Alice Dagliesh. As students read The Thanksgiving Story, they learn of the many difficulties that the Pilgrims faced and better understand why they were so “thankful.”
The four prompts include a narrative letter about traveling on the Mayflower, an informational compare and contrast paragraph, an informational paragraph about how the Native American Indians helped the Pilgrims, and a convincing opinion paragraph as to why those Pilgrims should celebrate with a Thanksgiving feast.
