We went through a fast-paced fact game where they would go back and forth telling one fact about what they learned from the videos. My plan was for them to learn about Squanto today and add to our timeline (among everything else). And just as I had hoped, one of them named him as the friend to the pilgrims. Well, something sort of like him. I think Teagan called him Santos or Squato or Squeedo, but she had the right idea. =)
I had the girls cut out some shapes that I had drawn after they colored them. We used some white lunch bags to glue the pieces on and they drew his body in. Then they had to write his name and three facts about him on the back. This is going to be a great piece that will go into their portfolios.
We also did tracings of our hands while we were cutting and coloring because I am going to let them make turkeys on another day.
