Much of what we know about the first Thanksgiving feast in America comes from a pilgrim named Edward Winslow. In this Thanksgiving pack, you'll find resources you need to teach about the first Thanksgiving from a primary source. With this pack, you'll-
Learn about Edward Winslow through background information of his life
Read an authentic-looking portion of Winslow's letter that has been hand-scripted and watercolor-washed to look aged
Expand the lesson by reading Winslow's fully transcribed letter
Experience the first Thanksgiving through authentic art
Do copywork based off of a quote taken from the letter
This resource will supplement any learning about Thanksgiving that you do through books or videos. There are six printable pages, four of which are transcribed letters. Use the shorter, handwritten letter with younger children, and the longer letter with older children. You can also spread the longer letter throughout the week.
