This is a whole Smartboard unit plan for teaching students about the first Thanksgiving. There are suggested read alouds and writing activities for discussing the lifestyles of the Wampanoag Indians and the Pilgrims. There is also some thanksgiving vocabulary words, and a Bingo game at the end to play. There is also an interactive compare/contrast activity where students use the Venn diagram to discuss and sort things that we do the same today to celebrate Thanksgiving and things that we do differently. There is also a retell bracelet that students make using a pipe cleaner and pony beads to retell the story of the first Thanksgiving. You can also find the little book to print to go along with this bracelet on my page for free "Thanksgiving retell book."
