5. COLOR THE THANKSGIVING DINNER!
6. God created the turkey, corn and pumpkin. We use these gifts from God and prepare them to eat. On Thanksgiving we are especially thanking God for these and all His wonderful gifts to us. It takes a lot of hard work for someone to make a Thanksgiving dinner. We should thank the person who cooked the dinner too!
7. Wordplay for grade 2 and 3 children: Write this
so the class can see it: "God made the living, growing turkey,
but mother made the turkey dinner." Ask, who really made the turkey?
See the word "made" twice?(Circle the words) Let's replace
one of the times "made" is used with the word "created".
Let's replace the other time the word "made" is used with
the word "prepared"(explain if necessary, it means stuffed,
and cooked). What should this say now? Erase the words "Made"
and insert the new words. Confirm, "Now that's better! We can see
how what God makes is different from what we make."
