Thanksgiving Word Work Centers

Within this collection you will find the following:

  • 32 word cards with coordinating pictures when possible
  • 16 activity cards 
  • a variety of recording pages
  • blank cards for you to add your own words and activities

Please review the word cards and use the ones that fit your classroom community.  We have included pilgrims and Native Americans as options.

We realize that the clip art might not fit how your school teaches the history of Thanksgiving.  If this is the case, simply omit the cards from your stack of words.  We chose to include these because we know that some schools still use these images and we wanted to make them available if needed.  Teaching at schools where these images are no longer used, we understand the reasoning for not using them.
