Holidays are all about traditions. One of my classroom’s favorite Thanksgiving tradition is cooking a big Thanksgiving feast. We have so much fun. Over the years, we’ve streamlined the process to make it a little bit less chaotic but that dang pile of dishes after is just unavoidable!

Stuffing is always a classroom favorite!

Use a visual schedule to show which item kids are making!

Go grocery shopping for ingredients a week ahead of time!

If you do community outings, this is a great one because it’s so meaningful. You can shop for the items you will be cooking with to teach students the connection between cooking and shopping!

Check out our Visual Recipe Unit for Thanksgiving! It includes visual recipes for green beans, gravy, stuffing, yams, and mashed potatoes.
