Bilingual Resources for Thanksgiving

The last few weeks I've been scouring the web finding fun and educational resources for Thanksgiving that I can use with my kids. I've had a blast, but I'm a bit disappointed that I didn't find more resources in Spanish. There are a few good sites that I've listed below, but most are in English.


  • By far, I think the best lesson plan I've found is from Hubbard's Cupboard. We've enjoyed reading and doing many of the activities listed. In fact, we downloaded the Pilgrim, Pilgrim Emergent Reader Booklet and I had the kids memorize one of the poems to recite on Thanksgiving. This entire site is in English only.

  • Scholastic also has an incredibly informative site (shown above) on the "first" Thanksgiving that includes a virtual field trip of Plimouth Plantation

  • Making Learning Fun has some super cute color-in paper dolls/stick puppets of Pilgrims and Native Americans. They also have an excellent section of Thanksgiving-themed MATH activities for kids.

  • Nourish Interactive has an awesome page of Thanksgiving-themed printables in Spanish. I just really love the amount of thought and work that has gone into this site.

  • The University of Illinois has a nice page in English and Spanish on the history of Thanksgiving. It even includes a few delicious recipes.

  • Primera Escuela has a few activities and handouts in Spanish for the holiday. And likewise, their English counterpart, First School, has the same downloads in English.


Here is a list of my bilingual printables for Thanksgiving. They are for a variety of ages and come in both English and Spanish.

We also really enjoyed listening to the following:

Do you have any resources on Thanksgiving that you especially love to use?
