This video allows students to take a virtual tour of the Plimoth Plantation where the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag Indians celebrated the first Thanksgiving. Students learn through interviews about the daily lives of the pilgrims and the Wampanoag people, as well as how they gave thanks during what is now a celebrated holiday. – Maria R
Stone Soup idea and FREE printable. We did the stone soup story as a Thanksgiving class party celebration. Had each child bring in a can of "something" to add to the stone soup and cooked it in the crockpot for all to eat together at our thanksgiving banquet table. Lots of fun and the kids love contributing to their soup!
Leaf Glitter: These dimensional drawings are made using leaves from your yard, lending them the subtle colors of late autumn. With a pencil, sketch a simple shape on card stock. A design with just a few lines and lots of space works best. Collect dry leaves in a bag and crush them into small pieces with your hands. Draw over the pencil lines with glue, then sprinkle on the leaf pieces. Let the glue dry, then gently tap the paper to remove any loose pieces.
