Thanksgiving Feast December 4, 2013

Filed under: Projects,Snapshots — dayspringmontessori @ 3:32 pm

Beginning in November, we talk about the history of Thanksgiving and the relationship between the Pilgrims and Native Americans.  We include the thankfulness of this year and of parents (and many other areas of our lives).  And we celebrate a Thanksgiving feast as the pilgrims and Native Americans did in the past.
