The week before the Thanksgiving holiday is one of my favorites weeks. This week the practical life shelf contained a lesson on how to set a table. Healthy food was much discussed at lunch time. The children discussed protein, grains, fruits and vegetables and the new "new food plate" which replaces the old food pyramid.
At the end of the week the children all worked together to make applesauce and vegetable soup. The older children as the pilgrims all set the table as the younger children had an extra play period. When the feast was ready the "Pilgrims" went to collect the "Native Americans" and invite them to the feast.
