A World of Thanks

Primary Subject – Language Arts
Secondary Subjects – Computers / Internet
Grade Level – 4-8

This lesson plan helps kids explore other cultures and languages while getting into the Thanksgiving spirit at the same time!

  • Have the kids get online and find out how to say “thank you” or “thankful” in other languages.
  • Have the kids keep a list, then transfer the words onto cute Thanksgiving cut-outs.
  • The cut-outs can then be stapled/taped to a bulletin board or wall with the heading “A World of Thanks” above it. Very culturally diverse!
