Thanksgiving is a wonderful tradition that brings families together, and it also brings many opportunities for children to learn vocabulary and develop conversational skills in another language.
In this thematic unit, campers will learn about the Thanksgiving tradition, they will learn to express in another language what they are thankful for, and learn to describe the foods they like to eat for Thanksgiving. They will learn how families celebrate Thanksgiving in the United States as well as in other countries such as Canada, Liberia, St. Lucia, and Grenada.
This week we will also celebrate the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag people that worked through conflict to celebrate a day to give thanks.
Linguist Apprentices (Ages 3-5) – Through music and play, campers will develop their conversational skills in a second language. Children will engage in arts and crafts and hands-on projects while learning another language.
Language Ambassadors (Ages 6-10) – Campers will participate in project-based learning activities that will help them connect the foreign language they are learning to meaning, providing them the opportunity to develop their conversational skills while learning about fun and interesting topics.
