Scholastic Thanksgiving & Free Printables for the Lessons


 So I've heard wonderful things about Scholastic's The First Thanksgiving Lesson Plans and Materials.  I've never used them or explored them until this weekend.  Wow!!

I am so excited to share this part of history with my kids this year.
We have a few Ipads in our classroom now and I'm planning on grouping them around the technology.  Scholastic has provided many links for the kids to explore.
I also plan on using the projector to discuss and share some of the material whole group.

The lesson plans are quite nice also.  I've printed it off and plan to follow the K-2.
It invites the kids and class to create various T charts, Venn Diagrams and share the thoughts and new knowledge.  I love the idea...so for easy management (for me and the kids ;)  I created this booklet using the information from Scholastic.

I obviously haven't used it yet,
 but would love to share it with others
 that are planning to use the Scholastic site.

Sounds interesting. Does it offer an accurate portrayal of events leading up to the first Thanksgiving or is it the traditional retelling?
