Mission Activity

I need you to pretend that you are going to travel back in time to the year 1621.  Now I need you and your friends to help the Pilgrims prepare the Thanksgiving feast.  You should include some of the foods that the Pilgrims prepared that day. Also include an item of food that was not on the menu that you would like to add.

Mission Activity Steps
1.  First let's go back to our Thanksgiving feast menu to review the foods that were served  that day.
2.  Now think about the foods that you want to prepare.
3.  Think about the food that you would choose that was not served that day.
4.  Now draw your meal on your paper.
5.  After you prepare your feast we will make a chart of the foods from the class that were served that day and the foods that were not.

Happy Thanksgiving! YUM! YUM!
