This unique packet is centered on the classic poem "Thanksgiving Day" by Lydia Marie Child.
It is an independent packet, fun for the holiday but also not just busywork. Included in your PDF is the following, for grades 3-6:
Page 1: The poem "Thanksgiving Day" with a verb and noun "hunt"
Page 2: Setting Illustrations: using two stanzas of the poem, illustrate the settings that are described in the poem.
Page 3: A page to list their favorite foods for the holiday (or any day, as to not exclude anyone), and an acrostic poetry activity.
Page 4: Unscrambling words from the poem, and a mini-informative text on "dapple-gray" horses, which is mentioned in the poem.
Page 5: Application questions about travel (then vs. now)
This printable can be used for grades 3-6. I hope you enjoy it!
