The Story Of Thanksgiving
The Story Of Thanksgiving A long time ago in England a group of people were being treated unfairly for wanting to worship as they thought best. They decided to leave their homes and journey to the country called Holland. These people were later called Pilgrims.
The Pilgrims did not like the city. After living 12 years in Holland, they decided to leave and go to the New World in North America.
The Pilgrims sailed back to England to get on a ship sailing to America. The ship was called the Mayflower. The Mayflower was a sailing ship made to carry things or cargo, not people. The ship was very crowed with 102 passengers and 30 sailors. There were many reasons for leaving England: Some wanted religious freedom Some wanted to find better work Some wanted adventure
Among the 102 Pilgrims there were 34 children. One baby was born. His name was Oceanus Hopkins. Can you think why?
The Mayflower left England in September, 1620. The journey took 66 days. The Pilgrims sailed 3,000 miles from England to North America.
The journey was not easy. The boat was crowded. The seas were stormy.
The people got sick. There was little food. There were bugs everywhere.
The Pilgrims landed first on Cape Cod in Massachusetts. It was November, 1620 and winter They made many
The Pilgrim the Mayflower Compact. of rules for everyone to people the right to choose their leader. They voted John Carver to be the governor.
In December the Pilgrims decided to find a better place to spend the winter. They sailed across the harbor to Plymouth beach.
They found a deserted Native American village. They decided to stay there.
ran out of food. One story says that some days they only had 5 kernels of dry corn to eat. The men found some Indian seed corn. died that first winter. They built houses. Many became sick and
When spring came the Pilgrims felt better. One day in April, 1621, a Native American walked into the village. He said, “Welcome.” He spoke English and said that his name was Samoset.
Samoset brought the chief, Massasoit, and another friend, Squanto. They signed a peace treaty with the Pilgrims. Squanto decided to live with the Pilgrims.
Squanto taught the Pilgrims many things. He taught them to plant corn, to hunt and fish. Most important was the respect he taught the Pilgrims to have for the land and the gifts of the earth.
The Pilgrims’ crops grew well. They had a good harvest. The Pilgrims wanted to celebrate and thank God for His Blessings. They decided to celebrate a thanksgiving and invite their new friends.
Since it was the time of the Native American Green Corn Festival, their new friends were happy to come to celebrate. They brought deer, turkeys, eels, geese, and ducks. About 90 Native Americans came to the celebration.
The First Thanksgiving celebration lasted three days. The Pilgrims and Native Americans feasted on: Leeks, wild berries, ground nuts, green vegetables Oysters, clams, eel Pumpkin pudding and cornmeal mush
They ate on long, wood plank tables set outside. They had races, wrestling matches, dances, and they sang together.
Thanksgiving did not become a holiday until October 1863 when Abraham Lincoln was President.

Comparing Yourself to a Pilgrim Child Choose a book to read. Compare a day of your life to a day in the life of a Pilgrim child. Use the diagram to help organize your ideas. Write a paragraph to show how your day and the day of a Pilgrim child are alike.
Travel Trunks Because the Mayflower was a cargo ship, space was limited. Each family was given a trunk to fill with things they needed. Get the trunk pattern from your teacher. Fill the trunk by drawing the things you would want to take with you on a journey today. Write the items on the list and put the list in the slit on the trunk.
Write a Poem Line 1 is the subject. Line 2 has 2 adjectives that describe the subject. Line 3 has 3 -ing words that describe the subject. Line 4 has 2 statements. Illustrate your poem. Let’s have turkey. Delicious!
Create a Timeline Use the Time Line Program on the Computer or draw a timeline Include these dates: September, 1620; November, 1620; December, 1620; April, 1621; Autumn, 1621 Illustrate each event
Rules to Live By After the Mayflower landed, the group promised to live together by being fair. They signed an agreement. It was called the Mayflower Compact. Work together in a group of 4 students to create a classroom “Compact” that you can sign as your promise to work together and treat each other fairly. Post your “Compact” on the classroom wall.
Pilgrim children did not go to school. They learned to read the bible and were expected to memorize and recite psalms. On your paper, write or draw about something you want to ask God. ...with Thanksgiving, present your requests to God. (Philippians 4:6) “I will thank you forever, because of what you have done.” Psalm 52:9 (RSV)
Give Thanks to the Lord Get this pattern from your teacher. Cut out magazine pictures of things you are thankful for and glue them on the cornucopia.
The Pilgrims declared a day of Thanksgiving to thank God for the bountiful harvest. Think of one or two things for which to give thanks. On a paper plate, write a sentence about something you are thankful for.
