are we thankful?
in the Straw
Let's find out what we know
the pilgrims and what would it be like to be one? Where
did the Pilgrims come from and why did they decide to travel across the
ocean to a new land?
Why do we celebrate Thanksgiving?
And, how was the first Thanksgiving different from the holiday that we
celebrate today? This
week we are going to learn all about one of our most important holidays.
The First Thanksgiving
have we learned today?
I would like for you to think about life in the 1600's. Was it a fun adventure
to travel across the ocean on the Mayflower? Or, was it difficult and
frightening? Were the homes warm and cozy in the winter? Did the Pilgrims
have plenty to eat? Was living then in Plymouth like living here today
very similar or much different?
