Here are a few of the Thanksgiving activties we did!Our "I am thankful for..." Turkeys
Pilrims! I got the template for the pilgrims from TpT. You can get your own copy here! They turned out really cute and the boys and girls had fun making them!
Write Around The Room... The boys and girls really enjoyed going on a hunt for Thanksgiving words that were hidden around the classroom. They had to find the words and then write them in the correct spot on their paper.
After making our headbands we watched some Native American dancing and did our own little Pow Wow- The funny thing was that we had just talked about rain dances and after our dance it of course started to rain. The boys and girls were convinced it was becuase of the dancing we did!
So I have found so many great ideas on Pinterest! I don't know how I was able to teach before using it!! There are so many great ideas on there like this one. The Thanksgiving Story bracelet. I hope your child was able to tell you the story of the first Thanksgiving by using his/her bracelet as a reminder!
Needless to say we had a blast doing these (and other) Thanksgiving projects. I am really excited for all of the Christmas projects that I have planned for the next two weeks!!!
