Each student has a specific job to do to help put the meal together and they learn the importance of working together. The students really enjoyed eating a meal that they helped to make!
Monday, November 19, Brockbank first-graders learned about the first Thanksgiving by making colored bead bracelets and retelling the story of how the Pilgrims came to America. Each bead in the bracelet represented a part of the story.
