This week we have been learning about Thanksgiving in Social Studies, math and reading. We created Mayflower handprints and discussed what we would bring on the Mayflower as people in 2013. Then, we created suitcases and researched to learn what people actually brought on the Mayflower in 1620.
We compared out ideas with actual items and found out they didn’t bring iPods on the Mayflower in 1620! We created counting turkeys in math class and then made handprints to show what we are thankful for. We read the books “Thanks for Thanksgiving” by Julie Markers, “The Thanksgiving Story” by Alice Dalgliesh, “The Coming of the Pilgrims” by E. Brooks Smith Robert Meredith, and “Oh, What a Thanksgiving!” by Stephen Kroll.
