Thanksgiving Unit Ideas

I just created this great little Thanksgiving book while sitting home sick with pnemonia (sp?) Feeling a bit better today so making use of my rest time. This book is free on TpT,the link is to the right of this column. During my Thanksgiving unit I like to let the children act out the harvest feast. We make Pilgrim hats and Indian vests. Our school allows us to take a parade around the school showing off our period wear.  We of course sing 1 little, 2 little, 3 little Indians. We create a cornucopia, each student brings in a piece of friut or vegetable to fill then we take a picture of it with the kids for the parents. There are so many things you can do to make Thanksgiving fun for the students, I also like to show a picture of traditional Thanksgiving food and give each child a paper plate, It is amazing what they draw with just some crayons. You can cover your tables in brown butcher paper and let the children set the table with their drawn plate, have them outline plasticwear and cup. For decor let them draw turkey's and other Thanksgiving objects, help them write what they are thankful for and take their picture at their mock Thanksgiving feast!

There is also a worksheet packet that goes withthis book. Everything in my TpT store is 20% off as well. Please visit and give me some feedback and follow me for more fun units to come. Have a blessed day.
