Paper-Strip Pumpkin

Here is a photo, as promised, of the 'Paper-Strip Pumpkin' we made yesterday.  If any of you are interested in recreating this in the future, I would suggest a quick-drying glue (like a glue gun!) to make this a bit quicker.  (At this age, I've learned that a craft with quick gratification is best!)  Using white school glue just took too long. 

After we finished our pumpkin, we also read the 'Funny Turkey' and 'Thanksgiving Friends' poems and sang the song, 'We Are Pilgrims, We Are Indians' by Laura Alden, which I'll share with you now:

'We Are Pilgrims, We Are Indians'
       by Laura Alden
       (sung to the tune of 'Frere Jacques')

We are Pilgrims.  We are Indians.
Yes, we are.  Yes, we are.
We will eat together.  We will eat together.
Let's be friends.  Let's be friends.

We then learned the Indian sign for 'friend.'

Today, we start our harvest studies, where we delve into one harvest item per day.  Today is apples, so check back with us this afternoon to see our projects!
