Thanksgiving Interactive Notebook

Okay, so I have been MIA with all of the chaos of work, kids, etc... But I'm back! You guys know how it is when you don't even want to see a computer. I've been so exhausted with everything! I literally feel like the walking dead sometimes. Uuugghhh!

So I know Thanksgiving has passed, but I still wanted to share what we did, just incase anyone needed ideas for next year.

 If you'd like to purchase my Social Studies Interactive Notebook- Thanksgiving Unit just click here or click the pic below.

So my students have Social Studies Journals for all of their interactive notebook activities. Sometimes I'll have them complete an activity or two on a piece of construction paper if I want to display it.
Here are the Indian and Pilgrim description flaps. We read some books and watched some videos about Thanksgiving. Then, as a group we came up with some answers for each flap.

After we discussed the Pilgrims and Indians, I had the little bambinos complete this Interactive Venn Diagram. It was a great way for them to compare and contrast the two.
 It was perfect time to incorporate past and present into this unit. So we compared the differences in technology, clothes, etc... After we had our discussion we completed this cute sort, and I had a daily grade for my grade book, YEAH!!! :D

 We also made this cute pie flap. The kids colored it and wrote a menu for their Thanksgiving Feast. My kiddos came up with some pretty yummy stuff!

 I also had them complete these activities:

People they spend Thanksgiving with...

and Food they eat on Thanksgiving.
 I couldn't complete this unit without a Thanksgiving Foldable book. The kids loved coloring and reading these to each other.

If you like this unit you can grab your at my TPT Store.

 I am going to post some pictures soon of some finished products, but until then....

Eat, Drink, and Be Merry!!!
