Thanksgiving is coming, ready or not! Thanksgiving is a very fun time to do a unit study with homeschoolers. Learn about the Pilgrims, about religious liberty, about the northeast Indians, about harvest. There are so many aspects to choose from. Here are a few ideas of books to read and ways to put together a lapbook about Thanksgiving.
Some fun reads for children are Squanto And The Miracle Of Thanksgiving, Stories of the Pilgrims, The Thanksgiving Story, If You Were at the First Thanksgiving. and If You Sailed on the Mayflower in 1620.
If you would like to make a Thanksgiving lapbook, you can get some very nice printable mini books from the books History Pockets, Life in Plymouth Colony and Easy Make and Learn Projects: The Pilgrims, the Mayflower and More. You can also find some things that could be used in a lap book and some fun crafts for Thanksgiving at Danielle’s Place and at Enchanted Learning.
Here are some pictures of Thanksgiving lap books by some of our very own AHE children:
