Review with children some Thanksgiving words such as turkey, pumpkin, corn, pie, family, and so on. Write each word on an index card or a cut-out shape of the season (an ear of corn, a turkey). On another card cut out or draw a picture to represent the word. Mix the cards up and invite children to match the pictures and words.
