Thanksgiving Themed Ideas
We know, it's nearly here. Thanksgiving is literally right around the corner. Problem is, your learners know it too. We're all just trying to make it through right now - to make it to the turkey. We'd like to help. We found a few ideas to fill your plan book this next week (or week and a half). So, get your planner ready, watch those empty slots fill, then put up your feet and listen for the gobble. Seems nearer doesn't it?
This (free) download also includes differentiated "I'm Thankful For" writing pages, which we also use. Our Kindergarten learners draw what makes them thankful on each feather. If your learners are beyond this, there is a draw and write page.
Did you notice one of the template ideas in the above link was to draw your Thanksgiving meal? If not, go back and check it out. Have your learners complete that activity as a springboard into this one. Mr. Vasicek via Scholastic asks you to add math into your Thanksgiving learning by creating a shopping list, researching ads for food prices and calculating the total cost. After this mission, your learners are likely to have a newfound appreciation for the planning involved in the Thanksgiving meal.
Cranberry ScienceThe turkey part of Thanksgiving now adequately honored, turn your attention to the cranberry. Jennifer Findley invites your budding scientists to make cranberries float and dance, the Kitchen Pantry Scientist shows them how to make cranberry spy juice, and True Food TV details how cranberries grow.
