QUOTE OF THE DAY

"Our rural ancestors, with little blest,
Patient of labour when the end was rest,
Indulged the day that housed their annual grain,
With feasts, and off'rings, and a thankful strain."

-  Alexander Pope

Every picture tells a story, and quilts perhaps even
more so, especially in American history. But quilts
also reveal geometry at work, as you and your students

3. ARTS TO CRAFT

RECYCLED PILGRIMS:
http://oldfashionedliving.com/holidays/pilgrim.html

Grab some empty condiment bottles, film canisters, but-
tons, and markers to create these cute Pilgrims. For
younger students, teachers should do all the glue gun
steps.

COFFEE FILTER TURKEYS:
http://www.lessonplanspage.com/ArtCoffeeFilterTurkeysK5.htm

Very easy, but lots of fun--using only coffee filters,
markers, and water spray bottles, you can create these
colorful turkeys to hang in your classroom for Thanks-
giving.

TURKEY ART:
http://www.alphabet-soup.net/hol/turkeyart.html

For primary students, try the hand turkeys, milk car-
ton Pilgrim houses, clothespin turkeys, turkey magnets,
or turkey handprints featured here.

TEXTURED TURKEYS:
http://www.lessonplanspage.com/ArtLATexturedTurkey15.htm

Using different methods and materials, upper elementary
students will explore textures to create a Thanksgiving
turkey.

GOBBLE THE TURKEY:
http://www.thefamilycorner.com/family/kids/crafts/gobbler.shtml

This stuffed turkey is assembled with paper bags, con-
struction paper, and chenille stems. Stuffed with rice,
painted by sponging on acrylics, and decorated adorably
with paper fan wings and droopy legs, he'll sit proudly
in your classroom.
