What educators are saying

We had our yearly grade level performance the week of Thanksgiving. We invited parent back to our room for treats. The students enjoyed showing their parents the placemats we worked on.
Everyone really enjoyed this hands on activity. Some students spent a lot of time creating their turkey feathers. They were so proud to take them home and use them for Thanksgiving dinner.

Thanksgiving placemat (craftivity) for classroom teachers makes a really fun and meaningful Thanksgiving craft in your classroom!

In this unit, you will get 6 different ways to make placemats with your students (plus a variation to one of the designs).

I have included images and handouts to save you as much time as possible. You can choose which designs you like and what works best for the age group you are working with.

You could also decide to let the kids pick which one they would like to make. If you have access to a school laminator and can laminate them when they are finished--then you can make them reusable!

At the end of this packet, I give you the handouts all together in one place to make printing easy! All instructions are included as well.

This is a great community project...

When we made these placemats at my school, we made them for the Salvation Army during their annual Thanksgiving dinner. Every student in my school, kindergarten to fifth grade, made a placemat, and we donated almost 600 of them to the Salvation Army to use with their Thanksgiving meal that year.

I developed a variety of lessons, some geared to younger students and some to older ones. It was a great community project, and I encourage you to do the same. It means a lot to the kids to give something of theirs to others!
