About the unit plan
Maybe you already know how American holidays like Halloween are celebrated. But have you ever heard about Thanksgiving? For many Americans, Thanksgiving is all about a nice family dinner with a stuffed, roasted turkey and a football game on TV. But there is a nice story behind the tradition.
In this unit, you will learn why Americans have a holiday called Thanksgiving and how they celebrate it. You will listen to stories about Thanksgiving, play word bingo and have a grammar race with nouns. You will also work with digital storytelling in the form of a cartoon about Thanksgiving, and you will learn how to dance the Turkey Dance. Finally, you will write your own Thanksgiving greeting card.
