It’s time to celebrate Thanksgiving! This resource is a fun and engaging problem-based learning activity for students in 2nd and 3rd grade. Using a budget, students shop a menu to plan what food they will serve at their own Thanksgiving meal. The resource also includes an opinion writing activity and an interactive class graph. You can create a packet with all the activities (packet cover page is included) or you can do the activities separately. Either way, there is very little prep involved. See below for a more detailed breakdown of what is included.
