Created by Beth Hammett. Have students use historical facts to write their own expository, fact-based newspaper articles and complete their own entertainment reviews with Talkin' Turkey Times.
Plenty of templates for students to:
Reinforce historical dates
Revisit historical times
Retell the story of Thanksgiving
Focus on point of view
Debate historical information
Uses cross-curriculum writing skills, such as:
writing themed articles
images (great for lower levels/extensions)
Easy to use, and great for bulletin board displays during Thanksgiving. Send home for students to complete while on holiday break.
