Thanksgiving Fun

How can it possibly be November? 
This school year is flying by and Thanksgiving 
will be here before we know it!

Below are some great Thanksgiving games, history sites, printables, 
Smart Notebook files and more for you to use with your students!  

Thanksgiving Games: 

The Thanksgiving Dinner game is a fun way to 
practice logic and problem solving!
In this game there is a table full of food and a bunch of family members. 
Your task is to arrange the family members to sit at the table. 
Each family member has their own preference of whether 
to sit close to a certain dish, or not to sit close to a certain dish, 
they may also like to sit close to a certain person, or not to sit close to a certain person.


Just drag the family members to their seats, and 
then press the finish button when finished. 
The better the family members' preferences are met, the higher your score!

National Geographic Kids has a fun Thanksgiving Mad Lib here.

Here is a wacky web tales on My Amazing Thanksgiving. 


This is a nice listening exercise where students 
have to pick the words from a drop-down menu 
while listening to the text (about Thanksgiving) being read.

An online Thanksgiving crossword puzzles can be found here. 

Student can read Pilgrim Village from Scholastic News. 

Learn how to talk like a pilgrim here.

The object of Turkey Swap is to swap the locations of the turkeys 
and the pigs with as few moves as possible.

You can move each tile by clicking on it. A tile can be moved to the empty space if the space is immediately beside it, or if there is one tile between it and the space.


Too Many Turkeys is a fun game for younger kids. 
The goal is to find Pete, the Perky Turkey {who wears a bow tie} 
in a sea of turkeys as quickly as you can!
