Practice writing a narrative letter, a compare and contrast, an informational paragraph, and an opinion paragraph using 4 different prompts inspired by the Thanksgiving historical fiction picture book, The Thanksgiving Story by Alice Dalgliesh.

More detail about the prompts:
Prompt #1: Sensory/Descriptive — Letter about the Mayflower Journey
Prompt #2: Compare/Contrast — New Plymouth versus Virginia Colony
Prompt #3: Explanatory — How did the Native Americans help the Pilgrims?
Prompt #4: Persuasive/Explanatory — Why should we be thankful?

This picture book-based writing lesson correlates with The Thanksgiving Story. As students learn of the many difficulties that the Pilgrims faced, they will better understand why the pilgrims were so thankful.
