Thanksgiving Activities

Get the whole family involved in learning with Thanksgiving activities like creating a wreath out of paper hands traced from each person. When giving thanks around the table, the family can debate whether or not they would have signed the Mayflower Compact. At other times of the year, family can encourage learning with summer fun activities like holding a watermelon seed spitting contest and measuring the distances.
