We read the classic story, "Stone Soup." It's a story about greedy villagers who learn to share. Every student had to bring a food item for our soup (ie. carrots, celery, corn, tomatoes, broth, etc). Then, we made a soup with these ingredients just like in the story. Students helped me make the soup by placing ingredients into the crock pot. Also, each student got a chance to stir the soup. In the afternoon, we made special Thanksgiving place mats for our soup. Near the end of the day, our soup was ready to eat! We ate soup, crackers, and apple juice. It was delicious.
