Here’s a guide to the Thanksgiving products we have on offer in our shop!
Thanksgiving Around the World
Cut ‘n’ Stick Interactive Workbook
This packet includes studies of five holidays similar to American Thanksgiving with a focus on the harvest and giving thanks. They include Pongal in India, Sukkot in Israel, Thanksgiving in Canada, Chuseok in South Korea, and Zhong Qiu Jie in China.
We wrote a blog post explaining the different parts of this packet last year so please check out that post here.
Focus on Non-Fiction: Thanksgiving
We completed this packet just a few days ago! It’s a mini pack in our Focus on Non-Fiction series which includes the following eight topics: The first Thanksgiving, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, The National Turkey Presentation, the Pilgrims, Sarah Josepha Hale, Squanto, Thanksgiving foods and turkeys.
The Story of the Pilgrims
These two products can be used together or separately for lessons about the Pilgrims and their role in American Thanksgiving history. ‘The Story of the Pilgrims‘ explains who the Pilgrims were, their voyage to the New World, and their connection to the Thanksgiving tradition. Like all of our History Makers sets, the story is presented on two pages with illustrations, provided in color and black and white. There are also many comprehension worksheets based on the text.
The Pilgrims Craftivities includes templates to make four different craftivities: a flip book, shape book, ring book and character writing display.
Gobble Gobble Turkey Glyph
We’ve recently been revising our glyphs, including our Gobble Gobble Turkey Glyph. We’ve redone the instructions in a step-by-step fashion and simplified the templates. A great activity that incorporates mathematics, reading and art!
Thanksgiving on Thursday by Mary Pope Osborne
Finally, we have a novel study for “Thanksgiving on Thursday” which is the 27th book in the Magic Tree House series. Great for junior readers!
