This packet can be used at Thanksgiving or any other time of the year to teacher the importance of celebrating gratitude.
The packet starts with student's family celebrations of gratitude and expands to countries around the world.
The last page is a list of teaching resources that can be used to drive instruction and create a meaningful classroom experience.
I used this packet in my first grade social studies class. The students were very excited to discuss their own experiences with gratitude and learn more about how people celebrate gratitude around the world.
It can be used for almost any elementary level.
