Thanksgiving is a fun time in Kindergarten. We spent one week learning about pilgrims, Indians, and the first Thanksgiving. Students learned about how the pilgrims came to America from a land across the ocean. They learned that the Indians already lived in America and helped teach the pilgrims how to plant foods, hunt, and build houses.
The second week was spent learning about turkeys. We did a lot of fun turkey activities where we counted feathers, wrote about different things we could eat instead of turkeys, added feathers and more. We also took a few days to learn about the food pyramid. Students learned about the healthy things we need to eat and why it is important to eat all those healthy vegetables.
