Students will work through Language Arts, Math, Science, Geography, and Grammar as they learn about the First Thanksgiving at the same time as they try to solve the mystery of who stole Grandma's secret cranberry bread recipe.
Solve the mystery by completing a handful of Thanksgiving-related tasks provided in the booklet and accompanying worksheets. This activity is great as a buddy activity with upper/lower grades or with adult helpers in a single class.
