Thanksgiving PACE Sites Message

18 Nov

Good afternoon! I hope you are staying warm. The air is frigid, but this is setting the mood for the holidays. Whoo whoo! They are upon us.

Today’s message is not only to wish you an early “Happy Thanksgiving” but also to share some ideas with you for consideration in your classrooms. If you have some time to allow students to participate in virtual field trips, check out these sites. One is for the first Thanksgiving.
