Curriculum Change

I am making a small curriculum change in history for the rest of the semester.  We are using Story of the World Vol. 2 for history and I am going to put it aside until January. First we are going to do a unit study on Thanksgiving and then we are going to spend the month of December on the meaning of Christmas. 
I found some great books on Thanksgiving we will be reading next week to learn about the history of the Pilgrims and Thanksgiving.

I am planning a few craft projects and to complete our study we are going to prepare a Thanksgiving meal next weekend.  I am still working on the craft projects but our meal will be the traditional Thanksgiving menu I usually make.

Thanksgiving Menu
Pecan Bacon Cornbread Dressing
Sweet Potatoes
Green Beans
Cream Corn
Yeast Rolls
Marshmallow Salad
Cherry Crunch Cake or Coconut Cake (both my grandmothers recipe, tradition)
or Chocolate Pecan Pie

I am looking forward to our unit studies and incorporating them into our family traditions for the holidays.
