We are having so much fun with our Thanksgiving activities. Teaching little learners the story of the first Thanksgiving can be done easily by reading books and completing this Interactive Thanksgiving Lapbook. This lapbook teaches the story of the Pilgrims and how the Wampanoag Indians helped them survive the cold winter.
This lapbook is easy to put together while teaching Thanksgiving to your little ones. Add a section each day as you teach about the story.
Here are a list of some books we read while teaching the story of Thanksgiving…
The Story of the Pilgrims by Katharine Ross
The Pilgrim’s First Thanksgiving by Ann McGovern
Squanto’s Journey by Joseph Bruchac
The Very First Thanksgiving Day by Rhonda Gowler Greene
While reading the books throughout the week, work together to complete the lapbook. I love that this lapbook is a way for your students to retell a story. Each section provides information that will guide your students to retell what they learned.
Grab those books and my Thanksgiving Lapbook to help your little ones learn the story of the first Thanksgiving. If your learners enjoy creating lapbooks be sure to check out my Lapbook Bundle with lapbooks to use throughout the year!
