North Kindergarteners learned about Thanksgiving by creating clothing and friendship necklaces and by preparing and sharing their own Thanksgiving Feast. The feast began with children dressed as Pilgrims and Native Americans sharing friendship bracelets. The classrooms were filled with the aroma of  the freshly baked corn and pumkin muffins that the students prepared themselves.   Kindergarten teacher Tracie Custer said her students learned that making butter takes a lot of shaking and a lot of time. Kindergarten teacher Callie Arnold said her students learned a lot because they were so involved in preparing every part of the feast.
