I love celebrating Thanksgiving. It is a refreshing reminder that we should be thankful every day for the many blessings that God has given us. For our family, it tends to be a less busy and hectic time of year than Christmas, and it is easier to relax and enjoy.
We are doing gratitude journals for our writing this month and a few other thankful activities around the dinner table. We are also studying the Native Americans as part of our history this month. We are skipping a formal study of the pilgrims as we covered this in history in September, but there are other years when we take a week or two and focus on that part of history.
I’ve created this list of free and inexpensive resources for Thanksgiving to help you study and enjoy Thanksgiving in your homeschool. Some of these resources talk about the history of Thanksgiving, some focus on gratitude and thanks, others talk about Thanksgiving through history, and a few more are fun activities featuring popular Thanksgiving items like turkeys.
They can be used during your school day, in the car if you need to travel, or as a family. I pray that they are a blessing to you during this season.
