The five informational texts in this pack present unusual, but true facts about Thanksgiving—things you won’t find in the history books. Use them as a count-down to the Thanksgiving holidays or as part of a holiday literacy center.
Each one-page article is accompanied by 5 CCSS-aligned questions and 1 to 3 bonus questions that can turn into a writing or research assignment. Full answer keys are provided. Targeted CCSS skills are listed in the answer keys.
These texts are designed appeal to 6th-8th graders and address particular RI CCSS skills in these grade levels. However, 4th graders, 5th graders, and some high school students might also benefit from the material.
