Thanksgiving Activities Packet Description

Authors write to give information, present a point of view (persuade) or to entertain. The article, The Pilgrims is informational and composed of two sub-articles: The Voyage and The Pilgrims’ Settlement and First Harvest. The packet was written at a third grade level, but is adaptable depending upon which activities you use. Since all grade levels have many levels within each classroom, you would best be the judge of whether the activities are suitable for your students. Partner work, small group or even whole group work is always an option.

The Thanksgiving activities packet contains literacy, math, writing, and speaking and listening activities. The table of contents in the teacher’s section lists specific activities and the related common core objectives. It is a great tool for writing lesson plans. The packet also includes answer keys when applicable.

The activities can be used as a booklet or the teacher may wish to pick and choose from the activities provided to use on various days. The packet might also be considered as an emergency substitute plan since it covers reading, writing, math and some art work. Combined with seasonal books, and songs, the activities provide a fun way for students to become more comfortable and proficient with common core standards.

Happy Thanksgiving!
