Mini Mayflower boats and the beginning of Thanksgiving unit study

Last week we read some of the Thanksgiving books in our book basket and also worked through a few of the activities from my big list of Thanksgiving links.  If you missed it is: Thanksgiving Links

We first worked on our calendar---they enjoyed figuring out how many days until Thanksgiving.

We did a worksheet on items that are orange---but I don't know if you notice...little Sissy--spelled her name!!!

She's pretty proud of that;)

Little Bear using an orange marker to color his Pumpkin
Then I let them all mix red and yellow to make orange---I think he liked this, don't you?

Then we worked on a Mayflower voyage map and a mini Mayflower

the finished boat

We also did a float or sink experiment before we tested to see if these boats would float.

There they go

It floats!
I loved these coloring pages and copywork pages from Christian Preschool Printables

Resources we used this week:

thankful character trait tune charts by Hubbards Cupboard from the Lord scripture pages 


Help from the Lord scripture pages
table turkey tracer craft
orange color sheet

pumpkin coloring page for extra paint

Books we read:
