The Great Thanksgiving Listen is a project dedicated to working with teachers and students across the country “to preserve the voices and stories of an entire generation of Americans over a single holiday weekend.” There’s still time to sign up and get info for how your class can participate.
The Tryptophan Myth
Science classrooms: there is a lot of good turkey content out there that would make for a good last-minute lesson or discussion thread before class is dismissed. An old standby, of course, is the science of getting sleepy after consuming turkey, which is a quintessential element of any Thanksgiving feast.
Recommend scoping out the Scientific American article linked above. But here’s an overview: turkey sleepiness is a myth! Science can prove it! It's a fun discussion that will hopefully stay with students when they dig in on Thursday.
