Objective: The student will be able to create an invitation the Pilgrims can use to invite the American Indians to the Thanksgiving feast.
Assorted colors of blank paper
Markers and crayons
Have students create an invitation to invite the American Indians to the Thanksgiving feast. Encourage them to be creative and to convey the meaning behind the feast. Have them include as many details as possible in the invitation (i.e. when it is, how long will it last, and what is being served).
Remind students that this is only a writing activity and that the Indians and Pilgrims actually worked together to prepare the feast.
