The Wampanoag Indians: A Thanksgiving Lesson

Spark some lively conversation about American holiday traditions and debunk accepted notions about the first Thanksgiving at the same time. After reviewing the mainstream version of the Thanksgiving story with your class, offer some background information (provided) that incorporates the point of view of the Wampanoag nation. Then partners work together to complete a worksheet in conjunction with the Children's Museum of Boston website (also provided).

When I am trying to find an alternative lesson from my norm, I try Lesson Planet, and always find a lesson that I can use. Sometimes a different perspective from a colleague can be that "point" that will work for that concept. I really feel that Lesson Planet is very well organized and easy to use. Thank you so much Lesson Planet for your help in my classroom.
