Sugarplum's Thanksgiving lapbook

Here's our Sugarplum's lapbook, we mostly studied the history of the Pilgrims and the Mayflower. We colored a map of the Mayflower's voyage, and we did Valerie from CPP's 'What they brought' layered book, and her Bible verse cards.

Our big girl, 6 worked a little on vocabulary words

She listed her blessings, and compared Pilgrim children with children today...

We learned a little about the Wompanoag nation and what the first Thanksgiving was like.

She even made her own version of the 'Pilgrim, Pilgrim' mini-book by using the words from the poem and adding her own artwork. We used Draw, Write Now! book 2 for the pictures she drew.
