A SPRINKLE OF TECHNOLOGY
Thanksgiving is in less than 2 weeks! Below are a few fun online Thanksgiving games that can be used on interactive boards, in small group, or in the computer lab. I've also included a few non-technology resources, too! Have fun!
Thanksgiving Challenge (ABCya!)
This game involves critical thinking and categorizing. Players must place family members at the Thanksgiving table based on specific likes and dislikes.
Thanksgiving Sodoku (Primary Games)
Sodoku with a Thanksgiving twist! This will definitely call for critical thinking and strategy!
Unscramble the letters to form a phrase about turkeys.
Thanksgiving Word Search (ABCya!)
Players have the option of choosing a small board with smaller words or a larger grid with bigger words so it works for K-5! The puzzles can be printed or played online.
Not everything has to be about Technology! Honestly, the strongest memories that I have of elementary school are the holiday crafts that we made each year! Of course, that might be because my mother saved every holiday craft my brother and I ever made in school and brings them out each year as she decorates her house. That is definitely something that I plan to do with my children, too!
15 Craft Ideas (Woman's Day)
Woman's Day posted an article with links to 15 different craft ideas and activities to do with kids around Thanksgiving. My favorite is number 16 - creating a Thanksgiving bracelet! Kids use a pipe cleaner and colored beads to retell the story of the first Thanksgiving - SO CUTE!
Free Thanksgiving Printables (Teachers Pay Teacher)
Teachers Pay Teachers has loads of great FREE printable activities to use for the holidays. Some of my favorites are Shopping for Thanksgiving Dinner - A Math Activity and Thanksgiving I Have...Who Has? loop game.
