Learning More About Thanksgiving

If you’re a homeschooler, then you know that there is always a way to make anything a learning experience. Holidays that are steeped in history, like Thanksgiving, are certainly no exception! There are so many ways you can bring Thanksgiving into your homeschool.

For your younger kiddos, you can come up with some preschool games or kindergarten games. Maybe a Thanksgiving match game, where they have to match photos together, or a vocabulary word with its definition.

For your older ones, you could have them practice essay writing or creative writing exercises. For essay writing, they could write what Thanksgiving means to them and their heritage. For creative writing, maybe they could come up with a fictional story that takes place during the time when Thanksgiving was first celebrated.

There are so many resources out there, for holiday learning fun. You just have to look a little for them. And never be afraid to ask other homeschooling families about some of their Thanksgiving/holiday education traditions.
