Students race to complete various tasks. Each time they complete a task or solve a clue they receive a piece of food. They need to collect all the food in order to save Thanksgiving dinner.

As students solve each clue they also learn basic facts about the first Thanksgiving

When was the first Thanksgiving?

What U.S. president declared Thanksgiving the fourth Thursday in November?

How long was the first Thanksgiving feast?

Thanksgiving vocabulary

Clues involve solving codes, completing math problems and a word search.

There are 6 tasks but the tasks do not relate to each other so you can take a clue out if you would like to make the activity shorter. The math tasks have several different versions in increasing levels of difficulty.

Preparations: Print, cut out each food picture, stick the clue, food item and task inside 6 different folders.
