Activity Overview

Many students may have traditions when it comes to the food they eat at Thanksgiving. Whether everyone in the family brings something or one person cooks for everyone, there's always some staples. In this activity, students will create a Thanksgiving dinner menu that reflects their family's Thanksgiving dinner or the dinner they would plan if it was up to them to decide what would be eaten. The instructions provided point students toward the former activity, but you can edit them if you want to give students the choice to do the latter!

When students have finished their menu poster, they can print it off to bring home as part of their Thanksgiving celebrations. They can also be hung in the classroom for a gallery walk, and facilitate a discussion on what students believe are essential foods to have and why their family may or may not serve certain "traditional" foods, like turkey or pumpkin pie.
