Studying the first Thanksgiving is a great way to kickoff this month! As you know I teach my kids ranging from preschool – fourth grade so I’m always looking for ways to overlap on topics and subjects. So for the next couple of weeks we will be briefly touching on the first Thanksgiving and the history behind it.
Here are some great resources I found that we’ll be using as we explore pilgrims, native americans, pie & turkeys with my little guy.
