Education World’s Thanksgiving Resource Roundup

Education World’s Thanksgiving Resource Roundup

Education World has been helping educators teach the holidays for over 20 years. Here are some of the very best resources for you to teach about our tradition of Thanksgiving this year.

The Great Thanksgiving Listen from StoryCorps

This annual national education project helps "high school students to create an oral history of the contemporary United States by recording an interview with an elder over Thanksgiving weekend using the StoryCorps App.”

The idea is to preserve voices of a generation through the unity that the holiday weekend brings, and StoryCorps works with educators to help them get their students involved.

You can help your students participate this year by downloading the free Teachers Toolkit which includes background information, permission slips, worksheets, activities and lesson plans.
