 About The Unit

         Thanksgiving is a good time for developing awareness of the many things we often take for granted and expressing appreciation for them.  In this unit, the children are first encouraged to think about how good it is to be themselves, and then to discuss things which make them happy.  Emphasis is placed on "being thankful" for the things we have, rather than being sorry for what we don't have.

         Through wonderful stories, poems, films and dramatization the children enter into the events of the first Thanksgiving and compare and contrast them with the ways in which we celebrate Thanksgiving today.  It combines many facets of how our lives today compare with those of earlier Americans.  Related art, cooking and music activities reinforce the unit.
