Preschool had a thankful, busy November! An in-depth study of the various Native American tribes involved creating Native American dress, symbol writing, and totem poles that told a family story. Village life was discussed and role played as well as a focus on the foods that were brought to the first Thanksgiving. During our Thanksgiving Celebration the children played in our teepee “Peace Village”, created Native American dances, built totem poles, raced ponies, went on a turkey hunt and sampled a Native American snack. This was followed by a focus on the Pilgrims arrival, Samoset and the first Thanksgiving. It was a delightful month full of examples of friendship and thankfulness.
