20+ Thanksgiving Ideas, Resources, & Apps

“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” ~ Winston Churchill

Thanksgiving is an important event that contributed to the development of America. The history teaches us about collaboration and acceptance between two vastly different cultures and this is definitely an important history our students can benefit from. We still live in a world where various cultures and ethnicities must thrive together. Countries and governments worldwide still struggle with this concept and one day our students will make important decisions towards immigration and foreign policy. They will also have to work with others worldwide, since many companies have global teams. Thanksgiving provides us the opportunity to teach students about what it means to be a good citizen and humanitarian. The Thanksgiving story itself helps students learn about what it means to appreciate cultures or people who are different and celebrate our differences and learn from each other. Students can also learn important lessons about collaboration and gratitude. Below are various resources and lesson ideas to get your students to experience Thanksgiving in a whole new light. You can also watch the recording of my recent webinar on this topic here!
