This week we celebrate our Mexican Revolution Day and Thanksgiving. In Sonora, we call it the Turkey Day, because all we care is the Turkey sale and store the bird for Christmas or New Year’s Eve.
Thanksgiving for most Mexicans is just an all-American holiday, nothing related to Mexico… except for the border states who know about the very crazy deals on Black Friday.
As EFL teacher, we must mention this holiday which is probably out-shined by Mexican Revolution Day within this week. Actually, I have never done a Thankgiving activitiy until this year. (The parade, festival and preparations take the time that I could use in this activity. BUT not this year.)
Internet is full of resources since it is a very important holiday. Best ideas that I have found.
- The easiest ever, using hands to make the turkey’s tail.
- Paper bag pilgrim in boy and girl. (A bit more complex probably for 5th and 6th graders)
- A like the idea of turkey puppet, probably some singing included.
- Teepee (native american house). It looks easy to make a whole village to play, jijij.
- This page has a couple of printables. I like the how to draw… those are cute.
There are more but I like these because they look easy and short to do it in one class.
