Two engaging activities to liven up your Thanksgiving theme unit:
• What Did the Pilgrims Pack? Children make model travel trunks like the Pilgrims used. Then they choose from picture cards of items and pack their trunk!
• Parchment Paper Classroom Compact. Children learn about the Mayflower Compact and discuss why it was important for the Pilgrims to have such rules to follow. Then, together, they draw up a Classroom Compact!
