What are you thankful for? Find out how gratitude played a role in historic Thanksgiving celebrations. Make your own placemat with historic images and your own message of thanks.
How did the U.S. or Canadian Thanksgiving become a holiday? Who might have been at the first harvest feast in North America? What did they probably eat? Why is the holiday celebrated today? Think about what you are thankful-perhaps a loving family, warm home, or your artistic skills!
To make a Thanksgiving placemat, draw a person's head on construction paper. Shade in the face with Crayola Multicultural Markers. With Crayola Fine Tip Markers, add other facial features of either a European Pilgrim immigrant or Native American.
Research information about what the Wampanoag, Massachuset, and other Native Americans who lived in what is now Massachusetts in 1620 might have worn on their heads. Using construction paper, draw an historic hair style, Pilgrim man's felt hat, a woman's coif, or an authentic Native American ornament. Cut it out and glue it on the face. Glue the person onto a construction paper backing.
Trace your hands on another sheet of construction paper with Crayola Colored Pencils. Color them with Multicultural Markers. Use markers to write "I Am Thankful For" on one hand. Write what you are thankful for on the other. Glue the hands to either side of the person. Air-dry the glue.
If you wish, ask an adult to cover your placemat with clear plastic adhesive so it can be wiped clean with a damp cloth.
