Learning all about Thanksgiving

Year 2 had a virtual experience of Thanksgiving. We connected with one of the students grandparents in North Carolina. Mrs Miner explained the history of the celebration and why it is so significant in the American calendar. Ms Chisholm then shared the meaning of many of the table setting items, such as the cornucopia, pumpkins, the Pilgrims and corn candy. The students also discovered the significance of the turkey.
