Thanksgiving Origins

$0.00

Our Thanksgiving Origins lesson plan teaches students about the origins of Thanksgiving. They learn how Thanksgiving began, how it evolved, and the lasting impact of its beginnings today.

Description

Our Thanksgiving Origins lesson plan introduces students to the origins of Thanksgiving and the history behind the holiday. During this lesson, students are asked to work with a partner to create three Thanksgiving meals: one with foods from 1621, one with modern foods, and one with a mix of the two. Students are also asked to use each of the letters in Thanksgiving to list things they are thankful for at home, school, or with friends and family members.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define Thanksgiving and explain the history of the holiday, as well as identify some facts and myths of the first Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving

A very informative module. My students loved learning about the real meanings behind Thanksgiving and loved making up a meal-plan that may have been used at the first Thanksgiving.
