People around the world give thanks for their food. Celebrate a harvest of pineapples, pumpkins, or pomegranates-and show a culture's traditions with this festive wreath!
Students find out about harvest stories and traditions in their country. Or find out about harvest celebrations elsewhere. When did these festivals begin? How are they celebrated? Who takes part in them?
Depending on the climate and soil, different fruits and vegetables are celebrated. The dates for harvest festivals vary too. Canada celebrates Thanksgiving in October, while the United States observes Thanksgiving in November. When do other countries hold similar events? What about those in the Southern Hemisphere?
Students choose one country. Find out what fruits and vegetables grow there. Create a wreath as a symbol of the harvest in that country.
