Trust me, students will gobble up these fun, silly questions. Ease into Thanksgiving break and have a little festive fun with your students.

Often Thanksgiving is a holiday that reminds us of the people, things, and places we are thankful for. I don't know about you, but I am thankful for my job as a teacher and for my students. Yes, this career is stressful and overwhelming, but also incredibly overwhelming. I say all this to remind you to take time to appreciate your students and spend time with them. Spend time playing silly games, having relaxed conversations, and checking in with each student. Investing in your kiddos is so important and hopefully will help build relationships too. Playing silly, fun games like would you rather for kids is a great way to build relationships.
Would You Rather Thanksgiving will ensure your kiddos are ready for the Thanksgiving holidays. Everything from pumpkin pie to the Mayflower is included in this game. Some of the Would You Rather: Thanksgiving questions are funny and silly, which is something both you and your students will appreciate.
Make sure to play along and answer questions. This will help students get to know you too. You might just find you have more in common with students than you might think!
Thanksgiving Would You Rather is NO prep and requires nothing from you. Would You Rather: Thanksgiving questions are offered as Google Slides, so you can simply assign them to your students. An answer sheet is included with this resource. You have two options when using Google Slides. Option 1: Share the answer sheet with students. Option 2: Assign in Google Classroom and "make a copy" for each student. If you are playing this at home with family, just share your screen and ask each question on each slide. The answer sheet could still be used.
Whether you are wanting to use this resource at school or at home, here are a few tips and suggestions for you.
If you are looking for a few more interactive Thanksgiving Activities, be sure to check these out. First up is a Balloons over Broadway STEM Activity and Read Aloud. This activity has students create their own balloon similar to the ones that can be found in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Also included is a reading comprehension passage all about the Thanksgiving Macy's Day Parade.
Next up, the "What are you THANKFUL for?" Game. Students will roll a die. Depending on the number they land on, they will answer one of six questions about being thankful and showing thanks. This is a fun, meaningful activity. I really like this activity because it takes away some of the stress of having to think of something specific. They can really think about answering the question they land on. I truly feel this activity gets authentic answers from students because of this.
Last up, "My THANKFUL Turkey". Students will type/write about something or someone they are thankful for on a turkey's feathers. My students always love this activity. The turkey and creative turkey feather make it fun!
These Thanksgiving activities can be perfectly incorporated with Thanksgiving would you rather. The best part is you also can tap into social emotional learning with students. Really get students thinking about what/who they are thankful for. Everyone has something to be thankful for.
Here are a of my most favorite Thanksgiving read alouds that I know students will love. My students always enjoy listening along and the holiday season offers so many fun choice for teachers. I love incorporating read alouds and games into this fun time of year.
