Tamarac’s Thanksgiving Adventure

Kindergarten students at Tamarac Elementary School explored a plethora of Thanksgiving-themed activities as they worked through multiple stations examining aspects of Native American culture.

Accompanied by their parents, the kindergarten students in Jamie Onorato and Dara Goz’s class moved throughout the room participating in hands-on activities, including fishing for numbers, reading symbol stories and creating various Native American items. These items included such things as wampum bags, miniature teepees and totem poles. 

The enriching activities from the Thanksgiving adventure make direct connections to the grade level’s social studies curriculum, in particular their study of the first Thanksgiving.
