Getting Ready for Thanksgiving [part three]

Pilgrims and Indians

The Littlest Pilgrim
This book is about a little pilgrim girl, Mini who wants to help but everyone tells her she is too little.  Until Mini meets a friend. She isn't too small to make a friend.


We talked about things that were the same and different about Pilgrims and Indians.
I braided yarn to use as a belt around the Indian girl.
I cut out the clothing from a coloring sheet for the children to glue onto their Pilgrims and Indians.
Letter I
This is a simple was to introduce Upper and Lower Case Letters.

Thanksgiving Friends
5 Pilgrims fishing in the morn (pretend to fish)
5 Indians help them plant corn (pretend to put a seed in the ground)
The Indians bring the corn (hold up right hand)
The Pilgrims bring the meat (hold up left hand)
Ten new friends sit down to eat (join hands together).

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. Lovely photos of the children, and that does sound like a delightful book for your country.. we don't have Indians or Pilgrims here.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
