Are you thinking about Thanksgiving?!

I don’t know about you but even though Halloween is just around the corner, my mind has already gone to Thanksgiving! 

Thanksgiving is one of my ALL TIME favorite holidays. Maybe it’s the pumpkin pie. or the mashed potatoes? or the acorn squash? hehehe… I love it all. 
As you know (as I sit here wearing a RED SOX t-shirt) I grew up on the East Coast. I lived and breathed Thanksgiving facts and places while I was growing up. I frequented Plymouth Plantation, Plymouth Rock, and taught about the Wampanoags in the heart of where this Woodland culture was back in 1620. 
I have put together two packets that compiles facts, history and fun to help you as you get ready to teach about Thanksgiving. I also included crafts that you and your class could do. 
Here is a sneak peak: 
In the packet there are 12 pages of factual information that you could use in your class as a book, resource, bulletin board or as fluency reads. 
Also included are 18 vocabulary cards that your students can use when writing!
There are also a few crafts in this pack! 
Not to mention there are 8 writing activities included! 
(On both triple lined and single lined paper!)
Here’s a FREEBIE just cuz’ I like ya!

I’m going to give away ONE of these units to a random person who tells me what their favorite food to eat on Thanksgiving is! I’ll announce the winner on Sunday!! 
The product is available at my TpT shop for $4.00 along with a similar packet that focuses on the Pilgrims!

    This looks thoughtfully planned! I am always looking for first grade friendly non-fiction thematic units of study. My family has a wonderful tradition of making Turkey Tamales with the left over turkey. Last year we added mashed potatoes and then dipped them in gravy. They were delicious!
