Pilgrim (Thanksgiving) Study

Last month we studied pilgrims because that's where we were in history. I thought it was great doing it early because we didn't have any trouble getting all the books we wanted at the library. As you can see in the pictures below, we got a lot of books.

Nice job, Mom! I love your descriptions....

When my children were young (the youngest is almost 16 now), we used to raid the library shelves, too. I felt criminal for checking out so many, but we actually used them all! And my children are voracious readers now . . . AND historians, too!

Keep up the good work, it pays off in the end. God is good!!

the cookies looked like a nice added touch to your fall studies! How fun! I would love to know how you did the corn one.

Love the Thanksgiving Study! I'll have to remember these when my son gets older... he's only 3, so we read "Thanksgiving Mice" and "What is Thanksgiving?" along with some worksheets. Stopping by from Hip Homeschool Hop - if you have some time, stop by one of my blogs:
