Fun writing for right around Thanksgiving time! Have students fill in the ingredients and the directions for what they think it takes to make their favorite food. Or, have them fill in the ingredients and directions for food the Native Americans and pilgrims would have eaten 400 years ago! I also have students use a separate piece of paper to illustrate their recipes. Glue to a giant piece of construction paper, and laminate for a fun placemat the whole family can talk about!
