Students review the reasons why Thanksgiving is celebrated in the United States. Using the internet, they research the history of the holiday and discover what the first Thanksgiving was like. They also examine a typical menu for a Thanksgiving dinner and create their own menu for the feast.
Students create various timelines. Students use timelines to learn about events that occurred in early United States history. After learning about the first Thanksgiving, students make a brochure demonstrating what they have learned. Students also create their own timelines for events that they are more familiar with.
