This packet includes an original story about the First Thanksgiving. It includes details to give students valuable information about the first Thanksgiving while teaching them about nonfiction text features: maps, bold words, headings, table of contents, labels, captions, page numbers and glossary.
There are two printable stories in the packet. The first printable story is suggested for use with lower students. You can use this book to have students highlight the text features as you read the story. They can then color the black and white pictures to make their story unique.
The second printable story is for higher students. Use this story to have students create the text features to go along with the story. They will create the table of contents, page numbers, add details to a map, caption, label, (option for heading) and glossary. The pages are left blank of drawings so students can become their own illustrator and create their own pictures.
