This is a set of five creative writing prompts I use with my teenage ESL students (would also be perfect for the upper primary or middle school ELA classroom!) as a fun way to discuss Thanksgiving traditions and celebrations. My students are at a B1-B2 English level, and this type of activity normally fills an entire 55 minute lesson by giving students 30 minutes to write, 10-15 minutes to peer-critique with a partner for grammar/vocabulary mistakes, and the remaining time for sharing. I often allow students to choose which prompt they would like to answer; however, you could select one prompt for all students if you want a more structured activity!
