A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving is a great introduction to Thanksgiving, particularly for EFL students who don't know a lot about the holiday. It covers the Thanksgiving football game, the turkey dinner, the theme of gratitude and friendship, even a name-drop of the Mayflower and Miles Standish!

This lesson plan can be used to introduce the film, guide students through the film with comprehension questions and then let them check their comprehension with a summary to fill out. Finally there are some discussion questions and ideas for extension. You can also use this lesson plan as stand alone activities.

I've included a guide to the video for teachers, comprehension questions, discussion questions, extension activities, teacher notes and an answer key.

For another Charlie Brown video guide, I have my critically acclaimed A Charlie Brown Christmas lesson plan as well. (OK, people just seem to like it).
