It has been a while, so I thought I’d post a quick activity that I created for Thanksgiving. Many students cover the Thanksgiving story annually since early childhood. I didn’t want them to do a Thanksgiving craft since a) I’m not very crafty and b) turkeys made from high schoolers’ handprints aren’t as charming as tiny ones. Instead, I used Boardmaker to create a simple sort of Thanksgiving words.
I recommend reading a book about Thanksgiving before you have students work on the sort. We read Thanksgiving, by Lynn Peppas using the Epic app on Google Chrome.
Feel free to laminate and create a file folder activity you can use for years to come, or have students cut & glue so they have something to take home!
