We have been pondering the history of Thanksgiving and learning Bible verses pertaining to gratitude for the last 2 weeks while engaging in the Scripture Adventures, ”Give Thanks,” included in the “Celebrate” Series.
It is imperative to my husband and I to teach our children the truth about each holiday along with Bible verses.

How It Worked For Us
Each afternoon we would gather on my bed and spend about 20 minutes going through the Give Thanks pages. I would read the lessons and would have my children ages 5, 7, and 11 complete the assigned pages, such as, copywork, a Thanksgiving craft, or their favorite was illustrating the two story books. I would also have the children narrate in their own words what they thought was important during each lesson. This helped them maintain their attention span during group time.
The children turned in their work the next day during our group time. We sang a hymn and said a prayer for all of our blessings that have God has bestowed upon our family each day.
The children were really shocked at what all the Pilgrims endured during their journey and first year residing at Plymouth Colony. They were heartbroken regarding the lives lost. It gave us an opportunity to thank the Lord for our good health and God’s sovereignty.
We can’t wait to start “A Christmas Adventure,” the first day of December!
