Description

Need an assignment that will engage students and also help you finish up before Thanksgiving break?

This assignment is perfect! It takes between a block and a block 1/2, depending on the level of your students. Students look at a painting of the first Thanksgiving and complete 4 task cards. They then read a primary source document about the first Thanksgiving and complete 4 task cards. Finally, they synthesize information from both sources to cover that tricky RI 9-10.7 or RI 11-12.7 standard which asks students to evaluate information presented in two different mediums. Students will have to do some critical thinking, discuss and collaborate with teammates, cite evidence, and redraw a new version with a new purpose. Most tasks are DOK 3 or 4.

This resource includes:

  • lesson plan for the day
  • the painting
  • access to the primary document about the first Thanksgiving
  • 12 task cards
  • 12 task card answer keys
