Thanksgiving Lapbook & Research

Since I started doing lapbooks last February I didn't have a Thanksgiving one yet. I thought it would be a great way to introduce the holiday to "A". Normally I get the printables from Homeschool Share, but they didn't have one. Which is shocking because they have everything else. After searching for awhile I came across this website, and it just has lots of suggestions of places to go. So this lapbook is a hodgepodge of stuff...and I don't really know where I got everything. I know some probably came from 1+1+1=1. Forgive me if I didn't credit you and just let me know and I will add it.

Research Used:

Books:Uncle Sam &Old Glory: American Symbols, Pilgrims of Plymoth by National Geo, Thanksgiving on Plymouth Plantation (really cute text that is part of a series), and Thank You, Sarah (not shown but in my Top 10 Fall books post)
Websites: PPlimoth website is awesome to look at primary sources and see both sides.  This other website talks about the symbols .
Completed Lapbook
I always include a video so you can see under the flaps
