This is a "collage" I made from various internet links on Thanksgiving. I knew almost nothing about this celebration and I recall searching in the internet for hours and hours in order to find something suitable for my students. I teach 8-12 year-old children at a state school in Marathon, Greece, and my classes are of mixed levels. This document is for grade six, that is, eleven and twelve year-olds. I believe that the text might seem "childish" compared to more accurate and elaborate descriptions as I "borrowed" the facts mainly from one website (cannot remember which one, sorry...) and simplified the language so that children are not horrified by dozens of unknown words. My task was to teach them something different and make them understand that strangely enough, history and culture is not a prerogative of the Greeks :-). The Thanksgiving lessons came after our lessons on the Gunpowder Plot and Bonfire Night so, the students were familiar with King James. Of course, it took us three 45-minute lessons to complete reading with all the activities. The questions were answered orally before we turned the page and were written after we read the relevant sentence or paragraph.
