Read the text and fill in the web (заполните спайдограмму). Thanksgiving Day Americans celebrate Thanksgiving Day every year, on the fourth Thursday in November. Early settlers in America couldn’t find enough food to eat and many of them died [daid] in the first winter. The Native [ neitiv] Americans helped people to grow vegetables and next year they had enough food to eat. Today Americans remember those difficult times and have family festive (праздничный) dinner with a roast turkey and a pumpkin pie. It is a national holiday and schools and offices are closed. Families get together, put on fancy dresses and costumes (маскарадные костюмы) and have parades with balloons and jokes. Thanksgiving Day date country costumes activities special food

1. The traditional colours of this holiday are orange, black and yellow. Children dress up in costumes of skeletons, goblins, black cats and spiders. There are many jack-o-lanterns in the streets when it is dark. (Halloween)
Ребята, а вы знаете, почему этот праздник так называется? Why do people call this holiday in such a way - ‘Halloween’? Does anybody know the history of this holiday? (Если учащиеся знают, то рассказывают, если нет, то учитель расширяет кругозор учащихся.)
*** Семантизация названия праздника (история возникновения)
T: Много лет назад люди верили, что 31 октября – особая ночь, когда нечистая сила – ведьмы, привидения, демоны кружатся в небе и могут накликать беду, надо было напугать их и откупиться какими-нибудь подарками. С тех пор и пошла традиция переодеваться в маскарадные костюмы злых духов и устраивать шествия по ночным улицам с зажженными свечами и фонарями.
А еще одна из версий названия праздника Halloween = Hello, winter! Как вы думаете, почему? Если дети молчат, то учитель поясняет, сопровождая свой рассказ цветными иллюстрациями, изображающими погоду поздней осенью (чтобы облегчить понимание иноязычной речи, не прибегая к русскому переводу): In October it’s cold, the weather is rainy and windy, sometimes it snows. The days are getting shorter, the nights are long and dark. = So soon after Halloween winter comes! Thus, Halloween = Hello, winter!
c) What is a symbol of Halloween? But how is it (a pumpkin) related to the title ‘Thanksgiving’? Any ideas, children?
Ps: Thanksgiving is a festival to celebrate the harvest. I think, people in America and Canada grow many pumpkins in their kitchen gardens.
T: You’re absolutely right. And people usually have some sweet pumpkin pie for dessert on Thanksgiving Day. And why is this holiday called Thanksgiving Day? What are the traditions?
*** Семантизация названия праздника
Thanksgiving Day – an unusual name for the holiday. Look here - thanks = thank you, what does it mean? (спасибо, благодарить кого-то), and to give – gave – given = давать, дарить. So, on this day the Americans say ‘thank you’ to every person around them, to those people whom they love very much. Учитель может прочитать стихотворение наизусть по-английски:
It’s time to show what we’re thankful for,
To our parents, teachers, friends and much more.
T: Thank you, children, that you are my pupils. Thank you that you love English, you are always very active at my classes and help me. Thank you for being kind and clever.
