Colonial Times

The books we have to support our Colonial Times/Thanksgiving lapbook (I made a mini book for each one)..are:
If You Lived in Colonial Times by Ann McGovern (1992, Scholastic Inc)
Why We Have Thanksgiving by Margaret Hillert (1982, Modern Curriculum Press)
Hands on History: Projects About Colonial Life by Marian Broida (2004 Marshall Cavendish Corp)
The North American Native Americans by Ernest Berke (1963, Lithograph for the Library of Congress)

To support these books and include them in our Thanksgiving Lapbooks, I made 2 mini books ...They can be used as research tools...or whatever; essentially one asks questions about the colonial times, one asks about the colonists...Check out Shannon's Colonial Times Minibooks...

Other great adds to your Thanksgiving Lapbooks:
  • We're doing our lapbook, as well as several crafts that I've listed before - like making a quill pen and felt hats and such......
  • Various links - this site (toward the bottom) has an archive of some great printables for thanksgiving.
  • Dr. Pat's Pilgrim Coloring Pages
  • Homeschool Helper - always a great lapbooking resource with some worksheets as well as templates.
  • Homeschool Share - my favorite lapbooking resource
  • Enchanted Learning - the best collection of Thanksgiving printables I've found!
