Open the Mail
We had a letter from Miles Standish! He taught us about the Mayflower and a little bit about the first Thanksgiving.
Story: Turkey Trouble (by Wendi Silvano)
Activity: Turkey Strut
While the music is playing, the kids dance like turkeys. When the music stops, they have to find a turkey foot – and fast!
Activity: Hide & Seek Turkey Dinner
As we learned from Miles Standish, people needed to hunt for their dinner during the first Thanksgiving. So that’s what we did! Pictures of Thanksgiving food were hidden around the room. The kids found all of them!
Craft: Mod Mayflower
Using simple materials found around the house, we made our very own Mayflowers!
