This Operation: Let's Plan Thanksgiving set includes 3 activities that will be a perfect addition to your classroom this Thanksgiving.

What's Included?

1. Plan Thanksgiving Dinner
Students will create a menu for their Thanksgiving feast, but they will need to go shopping first. 4 grocery store ads are included with variations in the costs of items and expectation of how the ads are utilized. All include amounts over $1.00. Some ads specify how much each serving of the item will serve. These variations of Trader Tom's Grocery Store Ad make it easy to find the one perfect for your class and/or differentiate based on student needs within your classroom.

Expectations for "ordering/purchasing" are also differentiated. Order forms require students to plan a meal with a budget, without a budget, plan for a certain number of people, and plan for Lucy and Franklin's family.
