Thanksgiving lesson plan

It is soon time to give thanks! But before bringing the turkey out, teach your students more about the Thanksgiving holiday.

Thanksgiving is an American holiday that is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of each November. Its rich history and traditions can be explored through the Thanksgiving Lesson Plan below.

As a teacher, you can use the lessons in the classroom to enhance your curriculum for the Thanksgiving holiday. The lessons below are ready-made but can be edited to fit your own teaching style or curriculum requirements.

Students should first learn about Thanksgiving history and customs after which they can use these interactive game-based lessons - the instruction is fun and engaging! The information retained helps students write or speak about Thanksgiving knowledgeably.
