I love to find websites that offer great content and materials for our children, parents, educators and caregivers.  The websites selected are primarily for preschool, kindergarten and elementary grades.  I'll be highlighting my favorites every other month with screenshots and a few comments.

Here is the special website for November | December 2009.  Thanksgiving is a harvest festival to give thanks.  This website complements the theme of the harvest.  It is a wonderful time of the year to learn and appreciate the wonderful benefits of the foods we eat.

Complement the activities of this website with activities and crafts in the Nutrition, Farm, and Thanksgiving themes here at First-School.  This website will be listed in the educational links for the nutrition theme for future reference.
