Earlier this week we asked Kindergarten and 6th Grade students to share their thoughts about Thanksgiving. While Kindergarten focused on the food and the historical significance that they have been discussing in class, 6th graders delighted in other traditions, like pumpkin spice lattes, sweater weather, and family hikes. But for all students, no matter their age, the central tenants of Thanksgiving remain—sharing a fabulous meal with friends and family, gratitude for all their blessings, and serving those in need.
The word cloud below showcases some of the students' thoughtful (and funny) answers, highlighting words that came up repeatedly. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do—maybe even use it, or something like this, to spark a conversation at your Thanksgiving meal.
