Celebrate Thanksgiving in a meaningful and engaging way! This resource includes two activities. One activity is a Fact Hunt and Thanksgiving Doodle Infographic Poster. The other activity is an expandable gratitude leaf project. With these activities, students will learn about the history of Thanksgiving, interesting facts about the day, and make connections to the holiday. They’ll create a doodle infographic filled with facts and a gratitude project.

About the Fact Hunt & Thanksgiving Infographic

Students will learn critical facts about Thanksgiving while filling in a Thanksgiving Doodle Infographic Poster. They’ll be up on their feet, rotating around the classroom, collecting facts, and learning! The end result is a visually appealing and informative doodle-style infographic about Thanksgiving.

About the Gratitude Leaf Project

After students learn about Thanksgiving, they’ll create an expandable autumn leaf filled with things they are grateful for. Students will reflect on people, places, experiences, and memories that they are especially thankful for. They’ll write about each. Then, they’ll turn their statements of gratitude into an interactive expandable leaf. The project is great for sharing and decorating the classroom!

Both resources require students to glue pieces of paper together to create unique final products! They make great classroom displays, gifts for the holiday, or hallway art! Also, these activities can be combined and completed as a single lesson or spread over two days.
