Thankgiving is on its Way: Turkey Tech it Up!

We all know that Thanksgiving is just right around the corner.  If you tend to lean a little toward the techie side, here are some TurkeyDay themed interactives and websites to investigate:

From Free Technology for Teachers:  A Round Up of 10 Thanksgiving Lesson Resources:

  • This includes some great ones including John Green's Crash Course on US History (Jamestown & Plymouth Rock with a touch of sarcasm), the History Channel's "History of Thanksgiving," and 8 other fabulous resources from Scholastic, Plimoth Plantation, & more).  

From The QR Queens over at Teachers Pay Teachers:  Thanksgiving & Turkey Fun QR Codes:
Thanksgiving and Turkey Fun using QR Codes
  • For $5, you get 15 links to "all-things Thanksgiving."  Silly, serious, factual, fun, fabulous.  Songs, stories, virtual field trips, drawing tutorials, and the gobble of turkeys.  With a mobile device, a QR reader, and this set, you've got a great station or iPad activity for K-3rd graders (or even beyond)...those are the tried, true, tested ages of the kids at my school who fell in love with them.  All I know is that I'm taking a set of codes with me for my Thanksgiving feast this year.

From iTeachWith Technology's:  Thanksgiving Interactive Games:
  • These have a fun flair to them, perfect for the time between turkey and pie.  Some oldies but goodies from their Thanksgiving post a few years ago, and unfortunately a few links no longer connect, but enough fun surrounding those few, that you or your kids will enjoy a little interactive relaxation time.
