Thanksgiving Lesson

Thanksgiving Lesson

If you enjoyed our Halloween lesson, this is another great way to bring a seasonal theme into the classroom! Designed for students in grades 3-12, this lesson guides students through devising their own Thanksgiving-related story while working on collaboration, imitation and planning and practicing skills. You can also integrate Language Arts learning through emphasizing story sequence, narration and descriptive language as students adapt their dramas into narrative pieces.

NOTE: Thanksgiving is part of our unique library of integrated lessons.  These specialized lessons simultaneously teach concepts and skills related to drama and the other subject(s) targeted in the lesson. In addition, these lessons are designed to meet National Standards for Drama and for the integrated subject(s), so you can reach learning goals across multiple disciplines.
