Trip To the Market

This week, we had a special field trip planned to visit our local farmer’s market. We have created a vegetable stamp garden to learn about how Vegetables grow.  Our visit to the market had 2 purposes.  One was to collect items for our Thanksgiving feast.  The other was to learn that Farmers grow vegetables in their gardens.  There is quite a variety of vegetables that you can buy.  Some vegetables are even the same vegetables that the Native Americans would have grown and shared at the First Thanksgiving!

Creative Play Spaces

The month of November has been dedicated to learning more about the First Thanksgiving!  We’ve been reading some wonderful books to learn about the Native Americans.  We learned that they were hunters, fishers, and gardeners.

We created a TeePee with special artwork on it!  The kiddos have found the teepee a great place to read, make music, and play.

We build boats, like the Mayflower and we sailed the cross the Sea
