Looking for something to reinforce number recognition and understanding? This Thanksgiving unit might be what you are looking for. It includes three different kinds of activities for your preschoolers and kindergarteners. What does it include?
* A whole-group activity, where children listen to drum beats and decide how many feathers to put on the Native American's head band.
* A book the children create, where they make a Native American's head and then add the correct number of feathers. Four different versions of the book are included. One using numerals 1-6, with the term "Native American", another one with the term "Indian" and then one each with number words rather than numerals.
* Center activities where children clip "feathers" (clothes pins) onto Native American cards, matching the numbers.
