Thanksgiving Bracelet. We did this today and the kids loved it. Very fun way to learn about the Pilgrims' first year, their travels, their hardships, and how Squanto helped them survive. The bracelet is a great way for them to remember the events.
This project includes art (paper self-portrait), fine motor skills (cutting red strips for flag), math (counting fingerprint "stars"), AND language skills all wrapped up in a social studies lesson. GENIUS!
