Thanksgiving Holidays Around the World
As the Thanksgiving holiday approached, second graders learned about other harvest holidays around the World. In pairs, they researched one holiday, such as Thai Pongal in India, Erntedankfest in Germany, Sukkot in Israel, Homowo in Ghana, the Chinese Festival of the Autumn Moon, Canada's Thanksgiving or Chu Suk in Korea to find out where, why, and when it is celebrated and what families do to celebrate it. Using Pic Collage, students shared some of the holiday's featured or compared it to our American Thanksgiving.
