Happy Thanksgiving

What are you thankful for? 

Last Thursday we celebrated Thanksgiving day. It was a special day and we learnt a lot about why we celebrate this day. First we listened to this video about the story of Mayflower.

The best part of the activity was sharing part of our job with second graders. We worked together and helped us to created a wonderful turkey and say what we were tahnkful for.

With this powerpoint we learnt some culture about how Thanksgiving is celebrated today in the USA.
