This Thanksgiving research project is an all-inclusive resource to bring fun, hands-on, engaging research and writing about Thanksgiving into your classroom! Students will learn about turkeys, Native Americans, and Thanksgiving through whole group research using our suggested books, the use of graphic organizers, and writing activities. 

**We have left the pilgrims portion of the research project within the download should you choose to use it. However, I personally do not use the pilgrim portion of this research project. Our focus is on turkey, needs/wants, and being thankful.

Students will graph and analyze data, compare and contrast two time periods, write about being thankful, disguise a turkey, describe Thanksgiving using their five senses, and create Thanksgiving art with the suggested art projects. We have also included math and literacy centers for differentiated practice. This resource makes research and writing simple and fun for all grades preK-5!
