Thanksgiving Week Crafts for Kindergarten

I can't believe that it is already Thanksgiving week. Here is a peak at a few crafts that my kinder kids did this week as we were learning about Native Americans and Thanksgiving. I hope that you can use some of these ideas in your own classroom!

TEEPEES- We created these quick teepees. My kids drew Native American symbols on their teepee.

We created these Native American "papooses." The kids loved carrying these around.

We created Native Americans, and then we followed up the craft with a writing activity.

We completed our "Turkey in Disguise" projects. This idea can be found on pinterest in several locations!

We created a class can, have, are chart for turkeys.

We participated in several shared reading experiences throughout the week. I found this poem on pinterest. I simply changed the first line to say "Native Americans." The kids loved this song and knew it well by the end of the week.

We created our annual Native American headbands and necklaces. We then met first grade in the cafeteria for our feast. The first grade classes all dressed up like pilgrims.
