The Excretory System and Thanksgiving Activities

I saw somewhere to make a Thankful tree for Thanksgiving. I took that idea and tweaked it a bit and cut out large acorns for each person to write what they were thankful for, on them. Then I added them to our Fall themed door. I will take a picture of the door on Thanksgiving for record keeping. Another cute idea my children and I thought up is for them to dress like Native Americans for Thanksgiving Day. I will stop at the Dollar Tree on Friday to see if I kind find some nice beaded jewelry. To make the squaw dress and shirt we are taking an white T shirt and cutting fringe into the bottom and the sleeves. I am going to let them paint them too, they just don't know it yet. I have not decided on face paint yet. They should be cute. The feather band is very simple to make with a feather template and construction paper. Tomorrow for Health we are doing Fire Safety, and The Excretory System.

We do something very similar to your thankful tree. I make everyone say what they are thankful for over dinner.

Veronica Lee I hope they find it interesting and helpful.

Anne, we do sometimes do that as well, if I can get everyone to pay attention while staring at all the good food. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
