Thanksgiving brings so many learning opportunities. There is no lack of things to learn about, whether you are focusing on the First Thanksgiving, Thankfulness, or just adding some fun to Thanksgiving for kids. You can add in various activities all through the fall season and even use some easy ideas just for Thanksgiving day. Whatever you decide to do, keeping your learning activities fun and fresh always helps.
