PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Enjoy 6 great Thanksgiving themed expressive language activites! These games provide a motivating, engaging theme for your students to work on 6 different expressive language tasks. The six Thanksgiving-themed games include:

1. Food Fight: Compare and Contrast

In this game if you get a Thanksgiving food item, you must compare and contrast the two words on the card. If you do it correctly, you get to keep the card. If not, you must put the card back. Two specialty cards are included: If you draw a full turkey, your turkey was cooked perfectly, and you get to take a card from another player. If you draw the bread and butter, you ruined your Thanksgiving meal and have to eat bread and butter. You have to give one of the cards to another player.

* Directions
* 40 Cards
* 8 Specialty Cards
* Blank sheet to make your own cards

2. Turkey Time Synonyms

In this game, you are asked to find as many turkey cards as you can. On the bottom of each card is a word that you must provide a synonym for in order to "collect" the card. Watch out for special wild cards that have you either taking a card from a player or giving one of your cards to another player. Included in this game is:

* 48 turkey cards with synonyms
* 8 specialty cards
* a blank sheet for you to add your own examples
* Answer Key

3. Pilgrim Pride: Sequencing

In this game, you are asked to find as many pilgrim cards as you can. To "collect" the card, the student must tell the steps in the given sequence. Special wild cards are included. Don't let the pilgrims miss their ship, or you will lose your turn. You can also use these cards as flashcards. Included in this game is:

* 32 pilgrim cards with sequences
* 8 wild cards
* one blank sheet for you to add your own

4. Thanksgiving Party: Categories

This party game may be used to play a game or as flashcards. To play the game, you must draw a card. If you get a person who might have been at the first Thanksgiving, you must name 2-4 items within the category listed at the bottom of the card. If you do it correctly, you keep the card. If not, you must put the cards back. If you draw a food card, your table is full and you get another turn. If you draw rain card, your party is cancelled, and you lose a turn. The player with the most cards wins!

5. Harvest Happenings: Multiple Meaning Words

On the bottom of each card is a word that has more than one meaning. You must identify at least 2 meanings of the word to collect the card. Try to find the lucky wishbone to earn another turn. Watch out for the pilgrim's hat, because it will cost you a turn. Included in this game is:

6. Describing Acorns - addressing how to describe words

This game has two difficulty levels (cards with pictures or cards with words). Within this game, students are asked to draw a card and must describe the word/picture on the bottom of it using at least 2-4 words/phrases. If they do it correctly, they may keep the card. If not, it goes back in the pile. You may decide to give them some help with an extra "cue" card that has 5 hints about how to describe words (i.e. category, function, place,etc.) Wild cards are also included to make the game more fun! Included for this game is:

* Directions
* 48 acorn cards (24 cards with just words, 24 cards with pictures)
