This past week we learned all about the first Thanksgiving and how different cultures celebrate different things. We learned about how the Pilgrims came here on a boat called the Mayflower and ended up meeting Native Americans that helped them grow crops and hunt. The kids made costumes and got to dress up for a special Thanksgiving lunch at school.
They were able to choose which costume they wanted to wear- Pilgrim or Native American.
We made placemats for our loved ones and used them to eat our lunch on in the cafeteria.
All week we learned about what we were thankful for. We talked about family, friends, food, shelter, and even how thankful we are for our safety.
