We enjoyed our study of Native Americans, and it was really convenient that we happened to be coming up on Thanksgiving week the following week also. The children enjoyed Squanto, Friend of the Pilgrims so much that we ended up finishing it in a few days rather than the few weeks it was scheduled! They also really enjoyed the crafts this week. They spent a lot of time making their wigwams and teepees. While we at the dollar store that week we HAD to buy some Indian and "settler" figurines so they could play with everything.
The Wigwam Village
The Teepee Village
Of course this also inspired them to dig out the Lincoln Logs to make cabins and forts for the "settlers". All in all, a very creative and memorable week!
