This week we have been doing a unit on Thanksgiving, complete with our own Thanksgiving feast. The kids dressed up as Native Amercians and Pilgrims and we had kid-friendly Thanksgiving foods.
(not pictured: Jackson and A., who is in the hospital doing her last round of chemo, hopefully.)
They thought that was really fun, but nothing topped their excitement on Thursday when we had a Squanto snack.
We talked about Squanto and the different ways he helped the Pilgrims through their first winter. One way was that he showed them how to plant corn with dead fish to help fertilize the corn. Then we made a yummy snack to help reinforce theis concept.
In a cup, add the following ingredients:
1. Corn (candy corn), just one or two
2. fish (Goldfish), just one or two
3. Layer of pudding and crushed Oreos (dirt/soil)
Do you think they liked it?
