There are many ways to learn about Thanksgiving, but at an elementary level we usually keep it pretty friendly with lots of turkey talk. These resources will help you complete your own Thanksgiving Unit Study!
Science and Math
It’s all about turkeys, Native Americans, and food for this unit study! Older kids can draw a still life portrait of a Thanksgiving spread (either real or imaginary), and younger kids can make turkeys out of play dough.
Printing blank journal pages on turkey shaped paper, or having kids write definitions that have to do with Thanksgiving, are both great ideas to get started with writing and literature!
