- Teach about the first Thanksgiving in your ESL Classes. Teach about the faith of the Pilgrims. Talk about “who” they were thankful to that first Thanksgiving. Children’s books can be a great tool (i.e. Squanto and the Miracle of Thanksgiving by Eric Metaxas).
- Host a Thanksgiving Party/Dinner for your entire ESL School. It can be held a couple of weeks before Thanksgiving so it doesn’t interfere with your volunteers’ holiday schedules. Click here for suggestions.
- At a party or at break time, have the teachers perform a play about the first Thanksgiving. Click here for a downloadable PDF.
- Individual volunteers or others from your congregation can invite ESL students and their families to their homes for Thanksgiving Dinner with their own families.
