SHIFT OF PERSPECTIVE
Fun Thanksgiving activity.
I had students watch 2 videos, and read a poem. All looked at Thanksgiving from different perspectives:
1) Mary Chilton, Young Girl from Plymouth Colony:
2) Plymouth Rock (yes, the actual rock tells the story)
3) Point of View Poem by Shel Silverstein (From the turkey's perspective!)
It would be great to add the perspective of Native Americans re: the 1st Thanksgiving - please share with me, if you find a good one.
