Thanksgiving Printable (** for premium members only)
Thanksgiving is a holiday for gratitude, family time, and good food. It’s also a time to learn about the Mayflower, the Pilgrims, and the Wampanoag native Americans. The following picks cover the entire Thanksgiving gambit: from American history to modern traditions, crafts and recipes.
Enchanted Learning: Thanksgiving Crafts
For little ones, holidays are an excellent excuse to get their hands dirty with some craft projects. And Enchanted Learning’s selection is excellent, as always. You’ll find lots of turkey crafts, some autumn leaf ideas, and a slew of printable activities for early readers. These include Thanksgiving coloring books, stories, connect the dots, counting activities, and fill-in-the blank “I am Thankful for… ” exercises.
Family Education: Happy Thanksgiving
Visit Family Education’s Thanksgiving pages for a friendly selection of printables (place cards, mad libs, and coloring pages), three Thanksgiving quizzes, holiday recipes, and travel tips. For Thanksgiving day craft ideas, read “10 Things to Do Besides Watching Football,” which admonishes us not to be coach potatoes, but rather to ” celebrate the true meaning of Thanksgiving.” through family activities.
The concise Infoplease almanac has several articles on the history of Thanksgiving, and a fun one titled “Thanksgiving by the Numbers” which houses all sorts of Thanksgiving trivia. The average American eats 13.8 pounds of turkey annually, most of it at Thanksgiving. 583 million pounds of cranberries were grown in the U.S. in 2003. Other noteworthy features are “Carving the Perfect Turkey,” an interactive crossword, and a Thanksgiving quiz .”What is the name of the skin that hangs off the turkey’s neck?”
