I can’t believe Thanksgiving is next week! And while our human celebrations might look very different this year, it’s comforting to me to know that nature and animals are following thier normal routines. My book Snack, Snooze, Skedaddle shows animals’ fall routines.
Wouldn’t it be cool to do a Venn diagram comparing what your students are grateful for with what animals are grateful for? Maybe a moose is grateful for its thicker coat. And a fox is grateful for mice. What are your students thankful for? I bet you’ll find some fun overlaps! (Here’s my example.)
