Teachers at the U.S. territory of Guam's Tamuning Elementary School are using the Thanksgiving story to help students understand about being grateful for what they have and why giving back to the community is important. Annie Arevalo's class of fourth-grade students who are gifted and talented are learning the history of Thanksgiving and are being encouraged to think about why they are thankful. A food drive is part of that lesson in helping the students become more aware of their community and what they can do to help others, Arevalo said.
Students learn what it means to be thankful
