This lesson is designed to help students understand the real meaning of Thanksgiving and to encourage students to have a thankful attitude, instead of a complaining spirit. Demonstrating thankfulness is a much needed life skill in today's society.
The questions compel students to focus on being grateful, even though unpleasant situations happen. Also, after completing this lesson, students will understand that other people have hardships, but still find a way to survive and be thankful.
