The First Thanksgiving - Pilgrim Study Unit

Learners explain the origins of Thanksgiving. As a class, they list all the meanings, stories, and images that come into their minds when they hear the word "Thanksgiving." After reading about Thanksgiving, pairs of students create 4 quilt pieces that illustrate and explain the first Thanksgiving. The quilt pieces are put together for display on the bulleting board.
