We had such a great week learning all about The First Thanksgiving!  We read many books about The First Thanksgiving and applied our knowledge into hands-on learning projects.  Here are some snapshots of what we created.  I used a variety of sources to put this project together.  The children were excited to take these home today to share with their families over Thanksgiving Break!

Here are some of the books we read together this week!
