Activity Overview


”Thanksgiving” has different meanings for everyone. For some it is to celebrate our blessings and good fortune, for others it is our worst travel nightmare. Allow your students to explore their own feelings towards the holiday, and make a short depiction of what Thanksgiving means to them. Students can write about a Thanksgiving experience they have had or what they would like to happen (or expect to happen) this Thanksgiving. You may have students brainstorm on their own, or have a classroom discussion about plans, favorite memories, or favorite foods.


For those who need a little inspiration:


  • giving thanks
  • family/friends
  • food/feast/eating too much
  • parade
  • specific foods (cranberry sauce, turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie, etc.)
  • autumn/transition into winter
  • football
  • Black Friday shopping

This example focuses on telling a story with pictures and dialogue, rather than mostly with narration. Use a comic like this on its own, or to get main ideas for a longer composition.
