My Family's Thanksgiving

Prepare for the excitement of Thanksgiving with a helpful slideshow presentation. Colorful and engaging, the presentation explores Thanksgiving symbols, details, and traditions, and prompts learners to contrast the given topics with what their families do on the holiday. Designed for learners on the autism spectrum but ideal for elementary mainstream classes as well, the presentation is a great tool for teachers and parents alike.
