Product Description
That Wednesday before Thanksgiving can be extremely frustrating as a teacher. Usually a significant number of students are gone, with many leaving as the day continues. It's hard to get any real teaching done. Wouldn't it be nice to have an academically-challenging stand-alone lesson about Thanksgiving you could do?

Do not fret! Here it is! And it's aligned to the Common Core standards! This lesson has students learn about the first Thanksgiving by determining the meaning of vocabulary from context, actively reading a secondary source, interpreting two journals from the 1600s, and citing textual evidence to answer questions. You will be hoping your principal stops by for your last period!

Also, if you like this assignment, you might be interested in Applying Common Core: Colonial Times. It includes 9 reading and writing activities that, as a whole, cover every social studies Common Core standard.
