Keep your students engaged this November with a hands on Thanksgiving science and social studies activity! Your students will churn butter just like the pilgrims as they use heavy cream, a container, and a marble to make butter! Use one of three different supporting activities for students to participate in the activity. Maybe they'll even make some butter at home for their Thanksgiving dinner!
This activity offers science, social studies, and writing activities and is great activity to complement studies of pilgrims or colonial life.
*1/4 page booklet- 3 steps
*4 step procedural write and draw
*Make observations (2 versions)
Please check the preview to see if this activity is just right for your students!
I have personally had students in grades K-5 complete and enjoy this activity! It's even great for book buddies!
