Pancake Day lined up perfectly with the end of our Science Unit on Food. We were also able to use the opportunity for parent involvement. One of the mothers made all of the pancakes for the students after she was given the materials.
Here is a short video to learn how to make pancakes if you do not have a pancake mix out of a box: Pancake Video

To learn about Thanksgiving the English Language Learners in grades 3-5 were read a story that was in Spanish and translated to English. It was made into a big book. They also followed along with a story of a family on Thanksgiving that is in the Festivals section of an English curriculum book one of the grade levels uses. They were able to read the story, listen to a CD of the story, and then ask questions about typical traditions on Thanksgiving Day in the United States. They then helped make a turkey. Each students was provided with a piece of orange, green, brown, or red paper. They traced and cut out their hands. The hands were then pasted to the body of a cut out turkey. The completed handprint turkey was displayed for the school.

For Halloween the students watched a video about an English family and what they do on Halloween. They learned some of the vocabulary, such as jack-o-lantern. The older students also answered questions on a worksheet after watching the video. The students also decorated their own paper jack-o-lanterns.
