This short PowerPoint presentation about Thanksgiving gives a short comparison of the celebration in the US and Canada. It then tells the a short history of the "first Thanksgiving" in 1621. After the short history, there are several slides on food typically eaten during Thanksgiving.
I teach at a school in Indonesia, so American children will already know about the food, but the history section can be applicable for any classroom.
Hope you enjoy.
