Just updated our Thanksgiving unit last night and today and wanted to share it with you all. (Can you tell we LOVE our new clip art from KPM Doodles?)
During the month of November we do a theme all about the Pilgrims and Indians and their voyage over on the Mayflower. Students LOVE hearing the different versions of the story. You can purchase this unit at our TPT store HERE.
