Thanksgiving Lapbook

This is my favorite time of year because the leaves have changed color and are falling, the temperature is getting cooler, and we celebrate my favorite holiday: Thanksgiving! In honor of that holiday, I created a Thanksgiving Lapbook for my girls to enjoy!

Our theme verse for this month is, “Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!” {1 Chronicles 16:34}.

All month long, we will be studying the different aspects of Thanksgiving like Pilgrims, the first Thanksgiving, how early settlers and Native Americans lived.

Please keep in mind the lapbook and several of its items are intended for my 6 year old and my 4 year old. You can add or remove any items. This is just to show you what our family will be doing.

Thanksgiving Lapbook

On the cover, I have included our theme verse and several coloring sheet cut-outs.

Inside, you will find our Unit Crossword Puzzle, Word Search, Vocabulary Words, Turkey Fact Matching, Vocabulary Words, and our Pumpkin Pie Recipe. (Photo 1)

On the left side, you can open the Crossword page to reveal a Thanksgiving Math Counting worksheet and then open again to an Acrostic Turkey Poem Writer. (Photo 2)

The right side opens to a Cornucopia Info Sheet, and then again to a Q&A on Cornucopias. (Photo 3)

On the back, we will color fall fruit and vegetables to fill in the Cornucopia! (Photo 4)

The books we have chosen to read include Thanksgiving is for Giving Thanks, The Very First Americans, and The Pilgrims’ First Thanksgiving. We purchased our books on Amazon, but these and other great Thanksgiving books can be checked out for free at your local library.

Most of the printables I used for this lapbook were created on abcteach.com, of which you have to be a member. There are several great printables on Kaboose.com that feature mazes, puzzles, and coloring pages that are perfect for lapbooking. The turkey facts were found on Kidzone.com.

Happy {Thanksgiving} lapbooking!

    Great job, Amy. I’m wondering where you found the cut-outs shown on the cover. For some reason I seem to be having a lot of trouble finding good Thanksgiving printables. I’m impressed you have yours done so soon!
