About

Do you have any resources to share or ideas for teaching these holidays?

See our main Thanksgiving page for resources, first off....

Here is a very handy book for holidays, available in our General Teaching Share area under Holidays. Also, giflingua has some presentations on holidays HERE.

As always, member Larry Ferlazzo comes shining through on his own blog - with a rundown of Thanksgiving Day websites chalk full of stuff for teachers. Thanks Larry! This page also see loads of Thanksgiving Day resources!

I really like this old but classic Family Album USA series. Easy level videos in a soap opera / sitcom fashion. Their 3 episodes on Thanksgiving show very well the traditional American holiday (football, turkey etc...) Get the videos in our A/V Player or the new Family Album page! Use the handy exercise book attached!
This video about gratitude is incredible! Use with the gratitude worksheet you will find there. 

Any other resources/ideas?

Shannon,

I'll be putting up a Christmas page soon... this will include Kwanzaa and Hanukkah resources. However in the meantime, look at this thread/discussion.

Scroll to the bottom of Larry Ferlazzo's list HERE. There are a number of things I'll be listing.

Cheers,

David
We also have more Thanksgiving Resources here, under the Holiday category in our Sharing forum : )

I recently listed resources from the Smithsonian's American Indian Perspectives on Thanksgiving there.

Here is another item about thanksgiving...might be able to be used by teachers.

Here are a couple of videos made by a teacher about Thanksgiving. Might be useful.


You know what we need to have for next Thanksgiving, best Thanksgiving recipes! We are forgetting the most essential element here- producing and eating great food!

My kids start in on me by mid October- When's Thanksgiving, mom? What are we going to have? Are we going to have stuffing this year? (what year haven't they had stuffing??) And mashed potatoes? (of course) And is Pattie making cole slaw?(yes!) And they just want to hear it, over and over again... dears : )

BTW, they are 27, 21, and 19 years old!

In case you're curious... and TWO pumpkin pies and a banana cream pie, and fruit salad with kiwi, pineapple, cantaloupe and pomegranate seeds (as a minimum), and, because I made them once and now the boys cannot live without it, Pillsbury crescent rolls, the kind that come in a cardboard tube that pops open when you bang it on the edge of the counter top.

And sparkling cider and lemonade and perhaps a little Jack Daniels after their aunt goes home, because she doesn't approve!

If they are good, they get a little hot apple crisp in the morning to hold them off until dinner.

What do you eat on Thanksgiving?
The Copy and Paste blog has some AMAZING documents and activities for students/teachers. However, they are of a high level but great.

They are about "The New World" and perceptions upon arrival. A thanksgiving theme.

Take a look!
