You and your students will love this literature unit! It goes beyond the traditional Thanksgiving story and activities and has hands-on activities and information that allows you to take a fresh look at the celebration of the holiday.

Using the unit study is easy for you. Just print the notebooking pages that you need for each student. And print one copy of the schedule and activity instructions for yourself. Give each student a three-ring binder, and they can create a notebook as they go through the activities in the study to demonstrate what they've learned. Use my literature unit studies all year long and organize each study in one large binder.
