Fall is quickly winding down – the air is crisp, the leaves are a changin’, and NextLesson has some great content for these brisk autumn days. Students will have a chance to learn their letters with leaves, bake a bevy of pies for their bakery, and site out settlements for the Pilgrims at Plimoth Plantation. Rumor has it that the Pilgrims might soon be preparing for a large feast – we’d best bake some extra pies for all the guests!
ELA; Grade K
