This Weeks Ag in the Classroom, Plan Your Thanksgiving Feast!

Fri, 13 Nov 2020 12:33:46 CST

This Weeks Ag in the Classroom, Plan Your Thanksgiving Feast! Whether your kids are doing blended learning, online learning, or back in school, its always nice to have a few extra resources and fun things to do as a family! Oklahoma Ag in the Classroom has come up with some excellent daily activities you can do with your kids and family.

For this week's Ag in the Classroom its Farm Friday Fun, so we had to start off with a few Farm Funnies! What do you call a cow that has had a calf?......... ..........de-calf-inated! Ok Ok Ok.. one more.. What has many ears but doesn't hear a thing?!? A corn field!!!

There are so many fun things to do on the farm! With Thanksgiving just around the corner today we are talking about Turkeys! For most of us, a traditional Thanksgiving meal includes a turkey with breadcrumb stuffing or cornmeal dressing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie, and other favorite family dishes. But our modern family feasts have little in common with the foods the Pilgrims ate during the three-day 1621 harvest celebration at Plymouth Colony, the event we know as the “First Thanksgiving.” The typical menu of Thanksgiving dinner is actually more than 200 years younger than that 1621 celebration. Edward Winslow’s description of the 1621 event tells us they had seasonal wild fowl and venison brought by the Wampanoag. In another account, Winslow describes some of the other foods available to the Pilgrims, including lobsters and other fish, eel, mussels, oysters, “sallet herbs” (probably greens like dandelion, etc.), grapes, strawberries, gooseberries, raspberries, and plums.
