A Cornucopia of Learning

A cornucopia is a symbol of abundance and usually shown as a horn filled to the brim with fruits and vegetables. Like cornucopias, newspapers are filled to the brim with learning opportunities for students.

Thank You

Using pictures and words from the newspaper, have students clip seven examples of things he or she is thankful for. Draw or trace a cornucopia on a piece of paper. Have students glue their examples in the cornucopia—as an added challenge they can place them in ABC order.

Community Heroes

Every day, people in your community do things that help others. Have your students look through the newspaper to identify as many community heroes as possible. Ask them to cut out pictures and headlines about these heroes. Paste on to a poster, decorate it and add the heading “THANK YOU.” Display your “Heroes” posters.
