American Thanksgiving Activity is a great way to reinforce the meaning of the holiday to your students. This package includes answer key, multiple approaches to complete the lesson depending on the age of your students. A comparison between American and Canadian Thanksgivings would be appropriate at this time.
As part of diversity and understanding of the people we share our planet with. I did a month by month study into different cultures around the world. To help with this unit I used the “Thanksgiving Day” by Gail Gibbons is a great book. Each month on the day or as close as possible I would read the book or any other appropriate book and complete the follow up paper. We then would put the paper into our portfolio. Also I used these events as part of the timeline in my room in which any and all important events were added. At times even pictures where available were placed on the time line.
