In kindergarten, we had the opportunity to learn about and act out some of the events that took place on the First Thanksgiving.
We had a lot of fun on our Mayflower voyage across the Atlantic. When we reached the new land, the students were given jobs to help prepare for the upcoming winter. The boys did a great job of collaborating to make a common house out of Lincoln Logs, while the girls took care of the children in the forest.
When it came time to celebrate all the blessings between the Pilgrims and Native Americans, everyone pitched in to help. The hunters had the job of preparing the turkey, the gatherers needed to harvest the corn, and the girls helped prepare the table for the upcoming feast.
When the feast was over, we continued the celebration with play time and game time. We of course saved the best for last, the pumpkin pie!
We truly have a lot to be thankful for.
