FREE Compare and Contrast Activity. Do You Know How Thanksgiving Has Changed?

Being able to tell how items and events are the same and different - compare and contrast them - is an important language skill we use in school all of the time.
It is important that students know how to describe and explain the critical features of people, object, and events.

Here is a brief activity about today's Thanksgiving 'feasts' and the original 'Thanksgiving' dinner between the settlers and the  Wampanoag Native American tribe.

Read the short narrative to the students and have them tell the critical elements that describe and contrast the two events.
You can also have them write a descriptive paragraph.

Enjoy the holiday, and keep on taking.
