DISCOVERY CENTER GAZETTE
THIS MONTH: Our theme this month is "Thanksgiving/Families". We will have lots of fun learning about the traditions of Thanksgiving, focusing on being thankful, and being with our families. We'll have art projects involving turkeys, feathers, food, and family trees. We'll learn about the pilgrims and Indians first thanksgiving, talk about the different foods that are traditional at this time of year, and discuss things we are grateful and thankful for. We'll host our annual Stone Soup Lunch on the 20th!
