    Thanksgiving handprint tree. 'We are thankful' for in-class bulletin board?

  • jay gidney

    Thanksgiving Craft: we do a variation of this using hand prints to make turkeys. The kids love it! Just print out our template by clicking here: At the top of the posterboard, entitle your tree "Smith Kids Thanksgiving Tree", inserting your family surname in the title. With a pencil on poster board, draw a basic tree with a branch for each child in the family. If you only have 1-2 children, it might be fun to include two or three branches for each child. Using tempera paint, markers, or crayons color the tree trunk brown. On red, orange, green and yellow construction paper, trace 10 copies of each child's hand. Cut out and give each child their "leaves". Each child writes one thing that they are thankful for on each leaf (grown ups can help if needed!). You may decorate the leaves with glitter glue if you like.  Next, tape or glue the leaves onto their designated branches. This makes a great activity to keep kids happy during a large family gathering. Hint: Make the base ahead of time for quick start up. Hang up the Thanksgiving Tree where the whole family can see it. Makes a great conversation piece! Later, after dinner, have the children present their tree to the family gathered around. Each child tells what they are thankful for and why. For added fun, make additional posterboard bases up ahead of time so that the rest of the family can add their leaves as well. Have supplies at the ready!

FAVORITE THANKSGIVING FOOD graph & writing activities. I would highly suggest NOT doing these lessons right before lunch. All that talk about Thanksgiving Yummies had my mouth watering. I created these activities to compliment our study of data in math. We had been collecting, sorting, and representing data as part of the Investigations curriculum, but these actvities could be used by any grade level.
