I hope you enjoy these photographs of my tour of the Mayflower II. The Mayflower II is an exact replica of the original, and was a gift from Britain. Feel free to use them in a slide show, or print, laminate and collate into a class picture book or display on a bulletin board.
The Thankful Tree is a nice alternative to the "I'm Thankful Turkeys" that are such a popular November writing activitiy. With the tree, you are also covering the four seasons.
I think your students will really enjoy all of these lessons related to Pilgrim children. The packet is filled with a nice variety of interesting writing activities to help your students learn more about this time period, as well as a dozen colonial games and 2 measurement activities to do outdoors.
Review a variety of math standards during your Pilgrim studies, with this 10-frames packet. If you enjoy using 10 frames, be sure and check out the rest of our themes. We have LOTS! I've included extra tiles to use as manipulatives for sorting, making groups/sets & patterning.
Students can independently place the laminated shape tiles onto the matching Pilgrim card, or they can pick a partner and take turns spinning. Whatever shape they land on, they place the matching shape tile on the card.
Instead of doing just turkey stuff, add variety to your November lessons, with some cornucopia craftivities.
Comparing the 1st Thanksgiving with today's current celebration, via a Venn diagram, is a quick and easy way to assess what your students know, as well as help them understand the concept of comparison and contrast.
Cover a variety of standards in a fun way with these "Stuff Me" Thanksgiving worksheets. Set a timer. Students write in as many _______'s as they can before the timer rings.
This packet will be FREE for an entire year! Woo hoo. After which time, it will be up-dated and put in my TpT shop. Click on the link to take a look. For your convenience I've included a PREVIEW of this new 25 page packet. "Stuff the Turkey!"
