But before I post our plans for that, I'm moving my Thanksgiving book list from the side bar for future reference.
I have so much to catch up on here, but tonight I thought I'd layout what we're doing right now...learning all about Thanksgiving!
This is one of my favorite holidays, and as much as I adore Christmas, I refuse to skip over such an important day in our country's history. So...no Christmas carols around here quite yet! :)
We've done a couple of Thanksgiving units in past years, one based on Cranberry Thanksgiving and another focusing on the Native Americans, so this year we'll be spending a lot of time on the pilgrims, their journey, and their life at Plymouth.
Amanda Bennett's Thanksgiving Unit - I'm using this as a sort of guide for the topics I want to cover. It's a 4-week study and quite in depth, so we're just using bits and pieces of it. Her reading list is excellent, as well as her ideas for hands-on projects. I just love this lady!
