My Favorite Thanksgiving Activities for The Classroom During November

November is such a great time to be a teacher. I feel like at this point you are in the groove. You know your students, your students know you, full steam ahead. Interestingly, of all the holidays I have created content for, Thanksgiving has the most options, many of them FREE. Even better many of these Thanksgiving-themed resources are appropriate for the elementary, Middle School, and even High School Grades! As you plan for November, I hope you enjoy these activities and that they help bring an attitude of gratitude into your classroom. After all, if you can teach students to be grateful, you have truly given them one of life’s most important skills.

Project-Based Learning: Plan a  Thanksgiving Dinner

The idea and need for this project came when I was doing a bit of planning our actual meal. I. HAD. NO. IDEA. The amount of math involved is staggering, let alone the analyzing, synthesizing, and evaluating… Mr. Benjamin Bloom would be so proud.

This activity includes over 20 pages, click on the arrows to preview a few!

Disguise a Turkey: Digital & Printable Version

You & your class are going to LOVE this Disguise a Turkey activity! I have always loved the classic Disguise a Turkey project. However, I wanted to put a digital spin on this November classic that would be adaptable for your younger grades (where you typically see this activity) but I also wanted to create a product that would be appropriate for your Upper Grades. I could not be happier with how it turned out. Use this Digital or Printable Thanksgiving Activity as a whole-class, as a send-home project, or in your November Centers. This can easily be implemented in your traditional classroom setting, an all-virtual, hybrid, or even socially distanced classroom.

November Turkey Art Project &  Sensory Poetry Template

This is such a great Thanksgiving Art Project for both younger and Upper Grades. I love to use the Holidays as a time to review figurative language and focus on Poetry, Thanksgiving is no exception. These two projects work as a great and complete activity with the Art Project and Thanksgiving writing project! If you haven’t tried a Zentangle art project in your classroom. This is the perfect opportunity. The process is simple, however, based on the skill level of students the project can become as intricate and detailed as they choose. Another benefit is the supply list is SHORT. Literally, paper, pencil to lightly sketch, and a pen, or marker if you really want to make a statement. All of these can be found in your basic classroom with basic supplies.

Check out some of the pages included below. Click on the arrows to change pictures.

I’ve included a brainstorm page as well as a few examples to jumpstart and inspire your students. If you love Zentangles in the classroom make sure to check out:

Once the turkeys are done, I have students cut them out and mount them on construction paper. We display our turkeys and poems in the hall for November. More on the poem below:

This product also includes a poem template that supports students in writing a really fun sensory-driven poem. Students use a brainstorm page to think of emotions, sounds, sights, smells…etc related to Thanksgiving. Using what they’ve brainstormed they start experimenting with figurative language. From that point, they will move onto the poem template. The template will scaffold them as they create a really beautiful and rich poem that describes Thanksgiving from their point of view and individual experiences. The results are really delightful.

I’ve updated this product to include a couple of different options for students to write their finalized poems on. If you use Google Classroom I’ve also uploaded a FREE option that students can use to type and display their finalized poem. Click here for access to the Google Classroom Thanksgiving Poem Templates.

The Thanksgiving Heroes You’ve Never Heard of Reading Comprehension

Thanksgiving, historically speaking can be a (and should be) a sensitive concept in the classroom. I think a great way to approach it is by using historical documents that offer different points of view. Specifically, the views of both the Wampanoag and English settlers. As an educator, you have a responsibility to educate yourself and your students from a place of accuracy and representation. This reading passage focuses on the letter written by Edward Winslow, as well as the friendship that was formed between him and Chief Massasoit. After all, if there was a message that should be known and celebrated today, it would be one of two unlikely individuals coming together under difficult circumstances and forming a friendship. This comprehension reading passage is great for November and a great way to open the classroom to a discussion about the actual history behind Thanksgiving today. If you would like to become more informed about the history of Thanksgiving and how the “celebrated” history differs, the resource linked below, along with this passage is a great place to start!

In My Corner Thanksgiving Edition (Digital Would You Rather)

Looking for a FUN Digital Thanksgiving Activity that’s Perfect / Appropriate for Upper Grades or your older students? This Digital Thanksgiving Activity Would You Rather Game is the Perfect Virtual Activity that can be used in the Distance Learning Classroom, Social Distanced, the traditional classroom, or even a hybrid! Students will LOVE creating their own “In My Corner Slide” A fun Digital spin on the classic Four Corner Game. In this, Digital Activity students will also enjoy interacting and CONNECTING with their other classmates using the questions that THEY thought of!

This product also includes 30 READY TO GO Thanksgiving/Fall Theme questions that students can respond to. This digital activity is editable through Google Slides. Not only is this spin-off of 4 Corners a fun way for students to get to know each other, but once you or the students complete the slides these can be a fun way to take attendance quickly each morning, a great way to start your morning meetings, exit tickets, OR use this as a game or center for your Class Thanksgiving Break  or Fall Break party.

This also can be such a fun way to practice and introduce opinion or persuasive writing as well! Pick a favorite slide, then let students list reasons and debates to back their opinions. Take notes and then try writing a brief essay!

This product was created for Upper Elementary, Middle School, Junior High, or Secondary Students. It can be completed in one class period, then stretched out and enjoyed. When teaching this lesson you can model each step thus allowing your students to get to know you, and form connections with you in the process! I’ve created a template that allows students to simply use a place holder for the image meaning they won’t need to worry about croppings or sizing their pictures to fit the slide! SO EASY AND FUN! This product was created in Google Slides and can easily be edited or assigned in Google Classroom or canvas. *** If using Canvas instead of making a single copy for each student to complete you will share the link to the presentation. This assignment was intended to be completed as a collaborative slide, not individually.

If using as a traditional Four Corners Get to Know you Game, use the pre-made slides, OR have the students create a slide with a question of their choice (I’ve included examples to help students brainstorm). You can then project the slides in your classroom and students will move to the corners of the room to show their response. I’ve included number pages you can print and hang in each corner!

If using as a strictly digital product, students will create a game piece and a “In My Corner” Slide. Students will use their game piece to show their response to each question by where they place it on the slide! Such a fun way to interact and connect digitally.

You can assign this as a collaborative slide and have students interact and comment with each other. Have students present their slide with a brief explanation of their question and a brief defense of their response. This can be done in the classroom or over a Zoom Call or Google Meet. Students can even meet as a small group in a breakout room during a zoom call with their other classmates that answered the same as they did! No matter what type of classroom setting you are teaching in, this activity integrates seamlessly.

This Digital Product Includes:

  • Instructions & Tips for using this product in a Distance Learning Setting
  • Instructions & Tips for using this product in your classroom
  • A Collaborative Google Slide etiquette & Page that students must initial before starting activity
  • A student instruction page with tutorials on how to complete the activity

What Actually was Served at the First Thanksgiving Dinner Reading Comprehension

This one is SO fun. In this informational text, students learn just how great the meal they enjoy today differs from the meal consumed during the first Thanksgiving feast. In fact, you may be surprised to see just how different they are! This is a fun and interactive, informational text reading passage. Students will enjoy learning more about the history of Thanksgiving and get a better glimpse as to what the colonists and Wampanoag people ate, as well as the impact the Wampanoag had on that meal. Take it a step further by downloading the free Tangram activity below! The two were created for each other and together make a wonderful and complete activity.

This is available in my shop, as well as Teachers Pay Teachers

 

Make a Meal: Digital & Printable Thanksgiving Activity

 

This project turned out really fun! Make a meal is where students create either a digital or printed representation of what they would like to see on their plate come Thanksgiving day! Maybe it’s the traditional Thanksgiving staples, maybe it’s a slice of pizza with a sprinkled doughnut to the side. Either way this is a fun project and a great way to connect with your students, while they connect with their peers. (Hello S.E.L.) This product also includes fun suggestions for extensions in addition to their digital (or printed) art.

Have your students write a poem about what they would rather see on their plate, or use the persuasive graphic organizer I’ve included to write a persuasive or opinion essay about why their picks are best and should be served every Thanksgiving!

Like in Grateful Gobblers I’ve included the digital notebook template. Use this template for student response, as a digital gratitude journal…etc!

I’ve added a few fun little details to the digital templates to make them extra fun. Notice on the tablescape there is a Food cover dome! I thought this would be a fun way for students to present their choice. With any student presentation I would suggest doing this in small groups, or even through breakout rooms over Zoom. ***Do not have ALL of your students present ALL of their meals in one sitting. Engagement will TANK. Instead spread them out over a few days, OR do them all at once in small groups.

As students present consider taking a running tally of the favorite foods. Use this tally to write out fractions, ratios, calculate percentages…etc. Then in the end rank the class favorites, or come up with the top favorites and have students group write a persuasive essay. Determine which is the top food to be served based on how convincing their essays are!

If you have other ideas about how to use this product or any of the others in the classroom, PLEASE leave a comment, I’d love to hear what you came up with!
This Product Includes:

  • 5 Different Digital Make a Meal Templates to pick from
  • 1 Digital Notebook Template

  • Digital & Printable Persuasive Essay Graphic Organizer

Snapshots of Thanksgiving: Digital or Printable

Works as a Fall, Gratitude, Thanksgiving, or BACK FROM BREAK Activity

In this, Digital Activity students will also enjoy interacting and CONNECTING with their other classmates! This product mimics the idea of a social media profile, and is based on my best-selling back to school resource, “My Life in Pictures!” **Read the Reviews on this best-seller!

This digital or printable activity is great for Fall, the month of November, the week of Thanksgiving or even as a day after Thanksgiving Break craft. It was created for Upper Elementary, Middle School, Junior High, or Secondary Students, and can be completed in one class period.

I’ve created a template that allows students to simply use a place holder for the image meaning they won’t need to worry about croppings or sizing their pictures to fit the slide! SO EASY AND FUN! This product was created in Google Slides and can easily be edited or assigned in Google Classroom or Canvas. *** If using Canvas instead of using this as a collaborative slide back to school activity it is my understanding you will instead make a single copy for each student to complete.

Students will insert 8 pictures plus a profile image and type a brief explanation or think of a relevant hashtag! These templates are so cool because not only are they SO SIMPLE to edit, but they are also BEAUTIFUL and age-appropriate. I’ve included over 12 styles and themes to pick from. Each one fit to a different type of personality. These technically all could be printed, however, I have also included an ink-friendly PRINTABLE version.

You can assign this as a collaborative slide and have students interact and comment with each others. Have students present their pages with a brief explanation in the classroom or over a Zoom Call or Google Meet. Students can even share as a small group in a breakout room during a zoom call, or have 2-3 students share slides each morning as a morning meeting! No matter what type of classroom setting you are teaching in, this activity integrates seamlessly.

This Get to Know you goes BEYOND the basic… What’s your favorite food? What’s your favorite color? and really allows YOU and your older students to get to know one another.

This Digital Product Includes:

  • Instructions & Tips for using this product in a Distance Learning Setting
  • Instructions & Tips for using this product in your classroom
  • A Collaborative Google Slide etiquette & Page that students must initial before starting activity
  • A student instruction page with tutorials on how to complete the activity
  • 2 completed examples
  • 11 Different Digital Theme Templates for you or students to pick from (15 including ink-friendly versions)
  • 1 Digital Notebook Extension (Use as a Gratitude Journal…etc)
  • 4 Printer-Friendly (Ink-Friendly, Still editable through Google) Version

Harvest Moon: Digital Art & Poetry Project 

One of my favorite Autumn Art Projects was to have students create a beautiful watercolor sunset behind black silhouettes, This Harvest Moon Craft is a classic, and now available as a beautiful digital activity, through Google slides! Students create a scene by adding the black silloettes to their slides. They then make the picture come to life when they add the gradient filled digital sunset to their Google Slide. These make look complex, but this project is SIMPLE and would lend itself well across a WIDE span of grades. I’d even dare recommend this to grades as low as 3rd and as high as 12th!

If you are looking for an activity more Fall / Autumn themed as opposed to a STRONG Thanksgiving theme, The Snapshots activity above or this one would be your best contenders! This activity turned out really beautiful. I continue to be surprised with the type of digital art students can complete through Google SLides with EASE.

The template I’ve included allows students to create a Fall themed work of art with ease. The beauty of these types of projects is that not only are students able to foster their creativity, but they are also learning and reviewing KEY digital skills in the process.

Because Art pairs itself so well to poetry and ELA, I also decided to include templates to help your students write a fall \ autumn-themed cinquain poem. These turn out exceptional and are a great no-stress way to introduce poetry to your students. Cinquains are also a GREAT language review! Also included is narrative writing graphic organizers to help your students write a story that could take place in the digital illustration they’ve created. This product is a really wonderful and complete art project for your upper grades.

Following David Whitmer’s death the Richmond Conservator wrote:

“On Sunday evening before his death he called the family and his attending physician, Dr. George W. Buchanan, to his bedside and said, “Doctor do you consider that I am in my right mind?” to which the Doctor replied, “Yes, you are in your right mind, I have just had a conversation with you.” He then addressed himself to all present and said: “I want to give my dying testimony. You must be faithful in Christ. I want to say to you all that the Bible and the record of the Nephites, (The Book of Mormon) are true, so you can say that you have heard me bear my testimony on my death bed….”

“On Monday morning he again called those present to his bedside, and told them that he had seen another vision which reconfirmed the divinity of the “Book of Mormon,” and said that he had seen Christ in the fullness of his glory and majesty, sitting upon his great white throne in heaven waiting to receive his children.[6]“

The Richmond Democrat also added this comment:

“Skeptics may laugh and scoff if they will, but no man can listen to Mr. Whitmer as he talks of his interview with the Angel of the Lord, without being most forcibly convinced that he has heard an honest man tell what he honestly believes to be true.[7]“

Oliver Cowdery, who was with the Prophet on this occasion, was filled with awe and wonder, for it was his first experience with a heavenly messenger. He wrote:

“On a sudden, as from the midst of eternity, the voice of the Redeemer spake peace to us, while the vail was parted and the angel of God came down clothed with glory, and delivered the anxiously looked for message, and the keys of the gospel of repentance!—What joy! what wonder! what amazement! While the world was racked and distracted—while millions were groping as the blind for the wall, and while all men were resting upon uncertainty, as a general mass, our eyes beheld—our ears heard.

“So, clearly, this was not a quid pro quo in the development of the final Book of Mormon product. It was not tit for tat, this for that—you give me 116 pages of manuscript and I’ll give you 142 pages of printed text. Not so. We got back more than we lost. And it was known from the beginning that it would be so. It was for a wiser purpose. We do not know exactly what we missed in the 116 pages, but we do know that what we received on the small plates was the personal declarations of three great witnesses, three of the great doctrinal voices of the Book of Mormon, testifying that Jesus is the Christ. …

Fear not; only believe. This is a time to make resolutions that will be binding upon you. This is a season to set standards that will hold you to the right course and make you happy now and in the years that follow. Remember, there is no happiness in wickedness. There is no happiness in sin. There is no happiness in disobedience. There is no happiness in going contrary to the teachings of the Church.

😳 Be right back.... I’m off to read section 4 again, but slower 😬 Anybody else feel the same way after reading this quote?!
-

“[Doctrine and Covenants 4] is very short, only seven verses, but it contains sufficient counsel and instruction for a lifetime of study. No one has yet mastered it. {…}Perhaps there is no other revelation in all our scriptures that embodies greater instruction pertaining to the manner of qualification of members of the Church for the service of God, and in such condensed form than this revelation. It is as broad, as high and as deep as eternity.

“I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream.”
🍋
“I have a dream that one day right there in Alabama little black boys and little black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.”
🍋
“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
🍋
“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed — we hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.”
🍋
“I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave-owners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood.”
🍋
“In the process of gaining our rightful place we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds.”
🍋
“When we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual: “Free at last! Free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!”

🎉🎉VISION BOARD G.I.V.E.A.W.A.Y
YOU GUYS!!! This one turned out better than I expected 😍😍😍 EVERYONE NEEDS A VISION BOARD.
🍋 TEACHERS
🍋 STUDENTS
🍋....EVERYONE
This became more and more apparent as I created this product and researched the value in having one. Due to it’s late debut in the #goalsetting season you can snag it at 50% off (the lowest price it will EVER be).

In a nutshell, you and your students will create a digital vision board that will act as a daily reminder when you set it as your computer, tablet, or smart phone’s new wallpaper or lock screen! I’ve created 26 EASY to use templates that create completely customizable and BEAUTIFUL designs, along with over 150 moveable “stickers” to make something truly eye catching (one of the requirements of an effective vision board) If that weren’t enough, I wanted to make sure you had the support materials to provide a really complete and educational project. So I’ve also included over 30 support activities, video tutorials, and extensions. Students will learns about vision boards, what makes them effective, the elements of a wellness, their circle of control, SMART goal setting.... and MORE! I know you are going to love this and so will your students. Even more, I know this has the potential to make a difference and lead to growth, and that is pretty satisfying. I’ve been working hard on this beauty and I NEED to get it in some classrooms!
Want this pretty little thing for you and a #teacherfriend for FREE???

Looking for an activity that’s SURE to bring the spirit of Elijah into your heart while you study Doctrine and Covenants Section 2 for #comefollowme this week. I’ve got two @familysearch activities guaranteed to make your heart swell, both take less than 30 seconds, and absolutely no family history know how is required. Trust me, I’m as novice as they come.
-
The first activity requires you to upload a picture of yourself, it will then calculate who you look like the most in your family tree! Sarah Mae Eden was a consistent front runner in my results, which sharing the same middle name Mae, felt extra serendipitous.

Head to this week’s blog post for the second @familysearch activity idea and more details! Comment below who you look the most like, or tag a friend💛

I was so excited when I saw @angiemaek had released a new song. (Composer of My Own Sacred Grove) I was even MORE excited when I realized it was about Family History, then I was the MOST excited when I realized this week’s Come Follow Me focused on Elijah’s promise to turn their hearts to their fathers 💛

Head to this week’s blog post to listen! Thank you again @angiemaek for sharing your talents with us. Absolutely beautiful 💛

This isn’t the first time this has happened. In fact, as I look back I can think of a handful of times where something similar has happened, in relation to preparing these posts or hoping they will come together.

You see, I’ve been praying, sometimes as a formal prayer, but mostly a plea from the depths of my heart, that Heavenly Father would help me to figure out how to make these weekly posts work. Because genuinely, I WANT to do them. They are good for my soul. However, putting these posts together takes a lot of sacrifice in the sense of time and dedicated thought, which as a mother with 3 young children, and a business on the side, time and dedicated thought are two of my most precious and rare resources....
