Last Minute Thanksgiving Mini-Unit

With just a few days left before Thanksgiving Break, I am happy to share a new mini-unit with you!  This craftivity is adorable, and includes common-core aligned reading and writing activities, along with making either a Native American or Pilgrim boy or girl.  It features two of my favorite Thanksgiving non-fiction books written on a second grade interest level, The Story of the Pilgrims, by Katharine Ross, and Giving Thanks...A Native American Morning Message, by Chief Jake Swamp.  You can pick up this mini-unit by clicking on the picture here:

Have a wonderful holiday, full of peace, joy, thanks, and family!  All diets suspended until January 1, 2013, beginning now...
Many Thanks to You,
