Do you need intentional gratitude in your life? Do you need your holiday season to be filled with rich discussion, sharing, and family tradition…. but with the simplicity and relief of an autumn breeze? Do you need some new ways to bring the family together and embrace one another, refocusing on what matters most? Then this unit is what you want.

There are lessons where family members are challenged to look one another in the eye (or write a letter) and share what they are grateful for. There are lessons where the family interviews grandparents and writes down traditions (new and old, to keep forever!). There are new “tradition” ideas in every lessons, including ones dealing with those who are homeless, hurting, or lonely… and also including ones like pumpkin bowling. There are lessons on the difference between gratitude and happiness. There is biblical discussion on what it means to be grateful…

The unit is intentionally much simpler than our others and also includes fun festive treats—candy apples, pumpkin spice lattes (again, another reason alone to get the unit haha), harvest dip…

…Plus, moms get a Thanksgiving planner built right in!

Oh… and of course we share the story of Thanksgiving (Pilgrims? Natives? Sir Martin Frobisher? Samuel de Champlain? Order of Good Cheer? Sarah Josepha Hale? What’s it all about?! Americans and Canadians BOTH get their answers!).

This unit is a fall and Gratitude Unit Study with history interspersed (Canadian history bonus is also included!). It is intentionally much simpler and different than our other units, to allow for something “short and sweet” to add to your Thanksgiving holiday. 

You will be making new family traditions, embracing old and almost-forgotten ones, experiencing Native traditions, sharing secret codes… there will be poems, music, some recipes (pumpkin spice latte that’s DELICIOUS!, etc)…and plenty of things for dads, as well. We will be learning bits of American and Canadian history while embracing the fall chill in the air, cuddled up with hot cocoa, and dreaming of marshmallow-covered sweet potatoes…

Most importantly, you will be growing closer together as a family while refocusing your attention on the one who deserves gratitude the most: Jesus. You’ll have moments of laughter, moments of sharing, and moments of gratitude. The true meaning of the holiday is the focus of this unit: THANKSgiving. It is 12 lessons, but you can easily complete 1-2 (or even 3) lessons a day. 


Our regular units can be used as core curriculum (with Core Connections) or as an extracurricular (without Core Connections). To see what is covered in each unit, go HERE.  However, please keep in mind that this particular unit is intentionally very simple as mentioned above, and is intended for those who want a break during this time.  Though it does include teaching for all school subjects (except math) is not reflective of a full until that can be used as a standalone, with our full Core Connections approach.  It includes simple core connections, every other lesson, for a gentle expansion.


This unit is intentionally simpler than all others, to stay in theme with the season.  It also includes MUCH simpler core connections, to be completed every other day, which is different than usual, to allow for a gentle expansion  To see a sample of how our regular Core Connections or regular units work, please visit our Samples page!
