Thanksgiving Book and Game
I love holidays! I get as excited as my students when I pull out holiday related materials. This Thanksgiving activity includes a turnaround upside down book as well as a comprehension game.
Turn Around Upside Down Book
With the turn around upside down book, students read about the Pilgrims from the beginning of the book to the center. They will then close the book, turn it upside down, and read the story of Squanto from the “new” beginning to the center.
The stories are written on an early fourth grade reading level. They could easily be adapted for younger students with the teacher reading the stories orally. The photos in this book were taken at Plimoth Plantation while I was on vacation.
After reading the book, students will play a game with comprehension questions related to the stories. Students move around the board game while answering inference questions including:
- importance of setting
I hope your students will have a blast with these activities!

Oreo Thanksgiving Turkey
Are you looking for a special treat for your students? Try making a turkey from Oreo cookies. Students made these fun turkeys with just a few ingredients. Two Oreo cookies glued together with icing form the body. A Hershey Kiss creates the beak. Eyes are Sweet-tarts. Finally candy corn forms the feathers. Students used icing to add details. These are yummy!.
