Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

Bring two integrated curriculum resources about Thanksgiving to an elementary social studies unit. The first activity focuses on Squanto's contributions to the early Pilgrims' survival with a gardening activity in which learners add fish fertilizer. Next, learners work on the second activity, in which they learn different ways to say Thank You around the world.
