Product Description
This simple ten page powerpoint presentation on the Origin of Thanksgiving includes informational text, historical drawings of the time, interactive links to Scholastic News, and a link to Native American Games and Activities online. The first informational slide describes the difficulties and dangers settlers faced both on the ship and in their new homeland. The second informational slide discusses the Native American presence in the country and how those people thrived on the land. The third informational slide relates the story of how the Wampanoag and Patuxet tribes assisted the settlers in obtaining and growing food. The fourth slide discusses the pact that the tribes and the settlers made to protect against other more aggressive Native American tribes. The fifth informational slide discusses the settler's harvest celebration and the way in which the Wampanoag tribe came to be involved in that celebration. The internet links mixed throughout the powerpoint will take students to the incredible and interactive Scholastic News Thanksgiving site. Topics at these sites include a thorough description of the settlers voyage, a compare/contrast exploration of the daily lives of settlers and Native Americans, and finally an explanation of how the first Thanksgiving unfolded. The final link will take students to a Native American online games and activities site.
