Thanksgiving is a great time to learn about the past and the present!
In this packet, student sort picture cards into things of the past and things of the present. A recording sheet is included for independent work.
After a discussion of the past and present, students create a Thanksgiving booklet that begins with the voyage of the Mayflower from England to the New World and ends with how we celebrate Thanksgiving today in the United States.
A simple full color teacher read aloud is included that can be printed, laminated, and bound into a book OR projected upon your interactive whiteboard.
Two options for creating the student book are included. They are:
1. Black line coloring pages that can be printed and stapled into a booklet for students to color with crayons or markers.
2. Blank pages with words for students upon which students can create their own illustrations. Suggestions for how to illustrate the pages are given.
3. By request, I added a faith page option at the end of the packet that says" Thank you, God, for our family and friends."
