Looking for Last Minute Thanksgiving Lessons?

One of my fondest memories of special projects was this Thanksgiving Traditions lesson that I did with my 3rd and 4th graders. Take a look! It’s easily adaptable for any age, and involves a menu of activities that invite students to write a toast, share their family holiday traditions, create a menu, and more.

And if you haven’t already, explore our Spotlight on American Indians. We’re featuring a Trail of Tears lesson plan, and our Thanksgiving movie will be free through Sunday! It features 3 great Activity Pages (including short answers, a graphic organizer and vocabulary), and a fun, fact-filled FYI full of extension possibilities. For K-3 content, check out BrainPOP Jr.’s Thanksgiving movie.

Enjoy, and have a Happy Thanksgiving!

    Will the Thanksgiving movie be free this year? I teach 4th grade and would love to show it?

    Yes! It will be available and free from Nov. 25 through the weekend. We’ve also got a lesson plan and some great interactive activity pages to go along with it. Thanks for asking!
