Thanksgiving Teaching Resources

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, why not take a look at some fresh, new and engaging resources for your students?

Firstly, we have close reading activities suitable for 3rd & 4th grade, and 5th & 6th grade. These come with an informational text about the history and traditions of Thanksgiving, and then with a whole host of extension tasks including comprehension questions, crossword puzzles and wordsearch activities.


If you're looking for a more complete look into Thanksgiving then check out our informational writing units. These also come in a bundle with the close readings to save you money. The bundles give you five lessons worth of activities!


For something a little different check out the Thanksgiving Escape Room Activity. In this resource students have to use their knowledge of Thanksgiving to escape by completing several challenges.


Finally, check out our Holidays Timeline Display & Activity for either a great classroom display, or a fun research session where children research the holidays before adding them into a timeline.
