Activity Overview

Surely, you have at least once been asked to list some of the things for which you are thankful. It is a common task given both in the classroom and around the turkey. Sometimes in our busy lives, we forget that we should be grateful for everything that we have. This activity is a chance for students to reflect on themselves and their priorities. While many students will certainly be thankful for video games or candy (as am I), students will undoubtedly come to realize people or things that are extremely important to them.

A spider map layout works very well with this activity because there is less emphasis on ordering than there is in a list. The Frayer Model layout works similarly well, but you are limited to exactly four items. However, for a more linear format, you may want to use a traditional storyboard.
