The last week we have been so busy it’s crazy. With only 5 days left until Thanksgiving break, we are working so hard. The past week we have really been learning about what life was like as a Pilgrim. My students have been busily reading, “Thanksgiving on a Thursday” as well as many other Thanksgiving books. We have been recording the information we are learning in our interactive journals and are absolutely obsessed with the Pilgrims.
My students have loved hearing about life on the Mayflower and in Massachusetts. To have my students really experience life as the Pilgrims, we have made homemade butter, eaten old fashioned cornbread, baked pumpkin bread, and have been making quilts.
