Product Description
Thanksgiving is a great time to reflect on our blessings and traditions. It’s also an opportunity to discuss the historical and cultural perspectives relevant to these traditions. This lesson engages your critical thinkers and challenges them to close read “Thanksgiving” by Ella Wheeler Wilcox, personally reflect on the meaning of the poem, connect gratitude to their lives, analyze the Pilgrim experience through excerpts from William Bradford’s Of Plymouth Plantation, research the historical context of the first Thanksgiving from the Wampanoag tradition, and create a visual to express gratitude.

For this activity, you can give your students all tasks together and have them create a task book or you can set up a table in the front of the room with each task. Either way, these activities can generate great group discussion after the completion of each task.

This task book is available in print and digital form. It is compatible with Microsoft OneDrive and Google Drive and includes directions for each. A short video tutorial is also included to assist with saving your document to Google Drive; written directions are included for saving your document to Microsoft OneDrive.
