I LOVE a good Thanksgiving Day Parade! It has long been a tradition in my family to get the turkey in the oven just as it is time to watch the parade on Thanksgiving morning. While I have never been able to see the parade live it is still just as magical to me watching it on television each year with loved ones. I was inspired to do a little learning with the balloon parade as our guide.
This unit is meant to to go along with the children's storybook Balloons over Broadway. There are also links to various videos to make this unit come to life along with hands-on science experiments.
In this unit your child/student will explore the history behind the Thanksgiving Day Parade!
