Thanksgiving Fun!

The Occupational and Physical Therapists often push into my classroom during science or social studies this year. I only have 4 students at this time so we have been trying to incorporate more movement into these lessons. For Thanksgiving, I created an activity to help the students to identify some traditional Thanksgiving images. The students were given clues describing the images including details about not only what they look like, but maybe how they taste or feel and what they are used for at Thanksgiving. These are all details that we have been learning about in science as well. After being given the clues, the students were then asked to move in a variety of ways to find the hidden pictures in the room. They slithered like snakes, walked like a turkey, hopped like a bunny, did the bear walk and army crawl. (DM)

Check out the whole activity and more in my Teachers Pay Teachers store:
