Thanksgiving Bible Unit

Most people may not think of Thanksgiving as a holiday to teach at church, but I think it's perfect!   I love using November to talk about giving thanks to the Lord and our blessings!  Here's a look at some of the lessons in this unit!

I LOVE this turkey anchor chart that we use to keep track of all of the things we are thankful for!  The kids can put together the turkey during our exploration stations time.  And then, we add the feather we are learning about during our Bible Story Time each week!

Look how well this little guy put together our turkey this week! ;)

Week 1, we learned about the thankful leper and thanking God for healing us!  We used white felt dots to make ourselves lepers and practiced thanking God for healing us!

While the kiddos were coloring, I got their Bible verse notes ready to staple onto their coloring page and send home for parents.  I simply write in the date we will finish our unit so parents can help practice the verse at home!  You can read more about how we memorize our verses at church in this blog post.

What a great first week!  Here's a peek at what the rest of our unit will look like!

We will be using envelopes to make a church during week 3!

In week 5, we will be making turkey handprints and writing what we are thankful for.  Here is the printable (read: easier) version of that activity!

I'll be updating this post with more pictures as we go through the unit.  You can find all of the materials and plans in this unit.
