We have spent a lot of time this month learning about Thanksgiving. I found several unit study ideas online and picked a few ideas from them. I printed off several fall/ Thanksgiving themed worksheets to do as well. It was a fun month of learning and my little guys enjoyed it.
I took all of Cruz's Thanksgiving themed work and put it into a binder as a keepsake. This is the cover we made for it.
We spent a lot of time learning about the pilgrims and Indians.
We watched several you tube videos about the first Thanksgiving but my favorite video is the Charlie Brown one that is on our Charlie Brown Thanksgiving DVD. It's called "This is America, Charlie Brown: The Mayflower Voyagers". We watched it twice. My boys love it.

I am glad we were able to study the history of Thanksgiving. I want my boys to know about it and why we celebrate it. I think we did a great job of getting that started this year.
