This is a support unit like a web-quest to use with the Scholastic Website "The First Thanksgiving" It compares and contrasts daily life of the Pilgrims and Wampanoag tribe. Studnets will explore the pages and complete a close reading activity as they explore the various pages on the web-site. There are many ways to differentiate with the webpages and documents in the unit. There are graphic organizers to assist students with organization of information as well as opportunities for them to reflect on their own practices and traditions during the celebration of Thanksgiving and compare to "The First Thanksgiving"
Students can work with a partner or on their own
Such a rewarding activity as the students are so amazed at the information, illustrations and videos at the website.
