We sang Children All Over the World last year and since it was QUITE a bit of work, I’m going to be using it EVERY year for Thanksgiving. The kids thought the posters were pretty fun and funny! Find the lesson plan HERE.
If you are looking for more Thanksgiving ideas, find more ideas HERE. If you scroll down far enough, there is a post with several Thanksgiving suggestions that someone on Yahoo Groups posted last year. One of the suggestions is a Thanksgiving sing-a-story which I will be doing next week, right before Thanksgiving.

Thank you for so many great Thanksgiving ideas! I love the posters for "Children All Over the World" – just curious…did you end up coloring them? Just wondering what you decided was the best way to do that. Thank you again! I love your blog 🙂
I just took markers and each poster got one color. I just colored in little sections on each poster. Like the little boy from Spain, I colored a few of the lines in his scarf orange, then one of the girls I colored her apron red, Germany got some green, etc. Really simple but a little color helped significantly. Hope that helps. And thanks for your nice comments! Nice to know I'm not just wasting my time posting my lesson plans.
Just responding to the question about how to color something large, which is occasionally necessary in this calling. PASTELS! I discovered these through a fellow chorister and got a whole set that has been totally worth it. You just swipe some on (kind of like using the side of a piece of chalk), then use a paper towel to spread the color around. EASY, and the effect is awesome, filled-in color. Get them at Michaels or any craft store. They'll last you forever, and you can color large surfaces in a snap.
Thank you for the tip! I'll have to check it out.
