The First Thanksgiving
- Have your students read The First Thanksgiving by Jean Craighead George.
- Have students answer a list of questions based on the book. Here are a few examples:
- What does the word pilgrim mean?
- Who is Squanto?
- What were the Pilgrims celebrating for the first Thanksgiving?
- Have students write a brief essay on how the knowledge they gain from reading this story differs from what they previously thought.
