“Thanksgiving, after all, is a word of action.” – W.J. Cameron
Thanksgiving is an important event that teaches us about collaboration and acceptance between two vastly different cultures and this is definitely an important history our students can benefit from. Thanksgiving provides us the opportunity to teach students about what it means to be a good citizen and humanitarian. The Thanksgiving story helps students learn about the importance of celebrating and accepting our differences. Students can also learn important lessons about collaboration and gratitude.
