One of the most popular activities during the year for my students.
UPDATED: Now includes new graphics and reflection questions!
In this activity, students get to be the "adults" and plan Thanksgiving dinner.
In this four step lesson plan students do the following:
*plan a menu
*budget for dinner
*create an invite list
*write thank you notes for their guests
Best of all it is easy for you. The supplies needed are construction paper (for thank you cards) and grocery store ads. I've even included a quick lesson plan tip sheet.
This activity typically takes my students a couple hours and we typically complete it the day before Thanksgiving break. It is a great way engage the students before break and still have them sharpening their skills.
I really hope your students love it as much as mine have.
