We're Ready for Thanksgiving!

We worked hard to get ready for our first fieldtrip, The First Thanksgiving, in class. We learned about primary and secondary sources while we researched the first Thanksgiving. We worked hard on social studies and technology (yes, technology) standards to share some of what we learned. Check out our responses below in the form of a song, rap, or news report. (Students who referred to themselves by name in their skits have chosen an alias for Internet safety.)

Want to do a little more research at home? Check out the links below that we used in class.

Leave us a comment and let us know what you think. :)
