We will look at photos from our trip to Plimoth Plantation several years ago and the posters that we have received throughout the years from God's World News:
Do and Don't: Learning from the Pilgrims and Indians
We will appreciate the art of N.C. Wyeth found in
N.C. Wyeth's Pilgrims, by Robert San Souci
For fun, we will read
Franklin's Thanksgiving, by Paulette Bourgeois and Brenda Clark
Turkey Surprise, by Peggy Archer
We will sing a song Auntie taught us.
It begins with these words...
"Thanksgiving Day is coming
and Mr Turkey said
'How very careful I must be
or I will lose my head.'
The pumpkin met the turkey..."
Finally, the children will enjoy a Thanksgiving meal made lovingly for them while they are dressed as Pilgrims
|A Pilgrim boy's hat and Pilgrim girl's coif|
and Native Americans.
|Moccasins and necklaces of beads or shells|
