It's almost Thanksgiving! In this unit we learned about the Pilgrims and the Native Americans.
We talked about the clothes they wear, the food they prepared and how they lived.
We planned our own Thanksgiving feast and enlisted the help of another teacher to pull it all off.
We created some hats and headpieces to wear for our Thanksgiving feast.
Here a some of our creations.
The Native American girls used crayons and markers to decorate their head piece.
They chose feathers to tape in place and finish the look.
The boys did similar head pieces using more feathers.
The Pilgrim boys used black, white and yellow construction paper to make their hats.
We measured the bands around their head.
Then, the students glued the front of the hat to the band.
The Pilgrim girl hat was a little more tricky and required more adult help.
We used butcher paper to fold in place and added string to secure along the bottom.
What a great addition to our Thanksgiving unit!
