Need some great quick activities for the days leading up to the Thanksgiving Break weekend? Check out some of our most loved Thanksgiving themed classroom printables below and Happy Turkey Day!
Thankful for Seatwork Solutions
Thanksgiving reading passages are a perfect way to blend the holiday and learning!
What a fun activity to do as morning work or as an afternoon lesson the day before break starts! Would You Rather is a wonderful team building exercise too.
Need something quiet for students to work on at their seats instead? This turkey coloring page is a nice solution that should keep them busy for awhile while you catch up on paperwork, do individual assessments, or prep the next lesson. You could even toss a few copies in the staff lounge for your colleagues who might enjoy a nice coloring lunch break.
Here’s a riddle for you to figure out – drumstick : turkey : : crust : ____________________
Analogies don’t have to be hard and un-fun. But plan on being hungry after working through these Thanksgiving Analogies with your students. Ha!
Thankful for Learning Center Activities
Love this gratitude list exercise! Students can’t give the same answer twice, so they are far more likely to start thinking outside the box for answers to why they are thankful. And perhaps realize just how blessed they are.
I bet you are thankful for each of your students this year. These cute printable certificates are a perfect way to express your gratitude to them right before they leave for the holiday.
What a fun bulletin board idea! Have students fill out the Thanksgiving Poem template, color, and then you can hang them in the hallway or on a bulletin board to display their creativity.
Thanksgiving riddles are a wonderful way to learn this holiday’s vocabulary words in a novel way!
Who says math isn’t related to Thanksgiving? Combine coloring and a math dice game for a great center activity the week of/or before break!
