Celebrate Thanksgiving

I know it's a little early for a Thanksgiving post, but I wanted to share a unit study curriculum for homeschoolers or anyone else who might want to teach their children or grandchildren a little more about the history of Thanksgiving. It is probably best suited for 8 to 12 year old children, but I'm also learning some new things from it.

The descriptions says that it's 15 lessons (about 30 minutes each) in which students discover information about Thanksgiving. Think Pilgrims, Native Americans, turkey and pumpkin pie, going to Grandma's house, and most importantly, giving thanks to God for His blessings. Some of the things it explores are history, geography, Bible study, art, poetry, and grammar. It includes craft instructions and a Thanksgiving scrapbook.

With only 15 lessons, there's still time to order it and complete it before Thanksgiving.
It's fun and my kids are really enjoying it, so I thought I'd share it with all of you. It's written by Charlene Notgrass. I ordered mine from The Boyers. If you're interested, you can order it from either site.

From time to time, I'll try to share things I'm using or things that have worked for us.

Enjoy :-)

I'm so glad you've shared your blog with us, Marcia! I love reading it!

I'm excited to be able to do unit studies with my grandchildren (whenever they get here). And this one sounds really fun. :)
