This time of year can be stressful for us as the students get riled up in anticipation of school break, classes get shorter making it hard to cram our lessons into half days, and our personal lives get busy.
I still like to celebrate with students and take some of the pressure off of the normal academia pacing that at this time of the semester can leave us all exhausted. Here are a few Thanksgiving ideas to either help your department raise money, fit in some extra holiday excitement, or comply with a half day schedule.
- Black Friday Consumerism Lesson (Tpt)
- Myth & Truth: First Thanksgiving Lesson
- Let’s Talk Turkey: the Cost of Thanksgiving Dinner
- Thanksgiving Cupcake Ideas (Mashed potatoes, Drumstick, Corn, Green bean Casserole, Stuffing, and Sweet Potatoes)
- Thanksgiving Culinary Math (Word)
- Turkey Dinner-Ratios, Proportions, Percents (TpT)
- Black Friday Scavenger Hunt (TpT)
- Funny Thanksgiving PowerPoint (15 slides- good for introduction to a lesson)
