This is an activity that focuses on thankfulness and boosting self-esteem in the classroom. I start the activity on the first day of November and the students are in charge of the rest all month long (for the most part!) :)
It is fun to watch each student's face "light up" when they see they have been gobbled and read why other students are thankful for them! It is also fun to see the students get excited to "gobble" another student the next morning.
