This unit will teach your students about the message of thanksgiving - being thankful for the most wonderful things in our lives!

Included in this product is a reading and writing project complete with book lists, vocabulary cards, various options for writing paper, and three options for the illustration.

Also included are parent letters and a crock pot recipe for having a classroom feast. Students even make their own placemats and adorable turkey hats to use at the feast!

*Bonus! Included in this file is a PowerPoint editable parent letter. That way you can personalize it or write it in another language to match the English versions!
