Thanksgiving Book and Game includes a turnaround upside down book as well as a comprehension game. With the turn around upside down book, students read about the Pilgrims from the beginning of the book to the center. They will then close the book, turn it upside down, and read the story of Squanto from the “new” beginning to the center.
The stories are written on an early fourth grade reading level. They could easily be adapted for younger students with the teacher reading the stories orally. The photos in this book were taken at Plimoth Plantation while I was on vacation.
After reading the book, students will play a game with comprehension questions related to the stories. Students move around the board game while answering inference questions including cause/effect, problem/solution, importance of setting, etc. covering several Common Core Standards.
I hope your students will have a blast with these activities!
