I thought some of you might be interested in the Thanksgiving themed articles I wrote for the Examiner this week…
Thanksgiving Science Fun is full of T-day facts, easy science experiments and cool info (know how turkey pop-up timers work? it’s really cool and you can reuse them).
How Should We Teach Kids About Thanksgiving? talks about balancing our desire to teach accurate history with wanting to preserve a sweet tradition for kids. I linked to good historical sites, lesson plans, serious stuff and plain old fun.
Tips, Crafts and Activities for Thankful Children has easy crafts, simple ways to encourage gratitude and other fun stuff to celebrate the spirit of giving thanks.
Thus ends this segment of self promotion!
