Yesterday, we shared some Thanksgiving tools. Today, we have a list of some useful resources for teaching Thanksgiving this year.
Before I list some of the best resources, I’ll tell you where I gathered most of my links. eThemes has a long list of resources as well as links to related topics. The other place I find a ton of resources is Larry Lerlazzo’s Website of the Day… and his list of best Thanksgiving resources. Here are a few I picked:
- Deconstructing the myths of the first Thanksgiving
- Brain Pop!: Thanksgiving
- Thanksgiving Timeline
- PBS: American Heritage
- Native American Perspective on Thanksgiving
- How Thanksgiving Works
- Are you telling the real story of Thanksgiving?
- Rethinking Thanksgiving
What resources have you leaned on when teaching Thanksgiving? How do you recognize Thanksgiving in your classroom?
