This year I (Mrs. Patterson) am staying home and cooking for my husband and kids.  My mom and dad are staying in Florida this year and my brother is going to North Carolina.  I think we will eat some turkey and dressing, (that is my favorite) and then we may go see a movie.  What about you?

Write about your Thanksgiving traditions or what you are doing this year in the comment section. What is your favorite thing to eat?  Do you travel somewhere?  Do you have family or friends come to your house?

George Washington Carver is our VA Social Studies SOL 1.2.  We read a book about GWC and drew pictures to help us remember facts about him.  Then we posted our facts on this Voice Thread.  Help our learning by adding your own facts about GWC.
