Let’s Talk Turkey

This is a reblog of last year’s post – lots of Thanksgiving goodies to try out during the next 3 weeks!

Engage Their Minds

I’ve gathered a few more ideas this year to add to my Cornucopia of Creative and Critical Thinking Activities for Thanksgiving, which I published a couple of years ago.

  • First, I want to go back to a suggestion in my Cornucopia post, which was, “What are you Thankful For? Ask it Better.” I’ve been using different prompts from this article with each grade level.  For example, my 5th graders brainstormed what they are thankful for that they cannot see.  My 2nd graders brainstormed what teachers might be thankful for, as you can see below.  I really like this twist on giving thanks.

  1. I love the idea of asking what people are thankful for from different perspectives! When we wrote about what we are thankful for that we can’t see my favorite response was “the tooth fairy”. 🙂
