Chicago Thanksgiving Parade with Merle, my little elf. This packet is full of informational text and photos about the history of Chicago's grand holiday tradition. Merle traveled to Chicago with me and we had a blast taking pictures during the parade. This is a great way to kick off the unveiling of the Elf on the Shelf in your classroom.
