Riley Avenue Elementary School students entertained their peers with a Thanksgiving parade, complete with balloons, on Nov. 25.

The colorful parade was inspired by the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, which the students learned more about by watching videos and reading “Balloons Over Broadway: The True Story of the Puppeteer of Macy’s Parade” by Melissa Sweet. They also participated in discussions on the logistics of the parade and how the floats, balloons and costumes are made. 

The students then brought their learning to life by creating their own balloons. They started out by sketching their ideas and listing the materials they needed before making them.  

Following the parade, the students performed in the school’s inaugural Thanksgiving play, which told the story of the first Thanksgiving. The events culminated with a Thanksgiving feast in the cafeteria.
