  • THE FIRST THANKSGIVING
  • A long time ago, there were a group of people called Puritans who lived in England. They had their own beliefs and ways to pray to God.
  • There was a king of England who thought everyone should go to his church.
    As Pilgrims did not accept, the king threatened them with going to jail.
  • The Pilgrims then asked the king to allow them to leave the country.
    So the pilgrims set sail for America on a ship called the “Mayflower.”
  • The trip to America was long and hard. There were storms and the ship was really crowded.
  • When they got to America, it was winter and there were no food or houses. Many of the pilgrims died from sickness, starvation and freezing to death.
  • The Pilgrims found some people living in the new land. They called them Indians. They saw the Pilgrims suffering and they decided to help them.
  • They showed them how to hunt and fish.
    They showed them how to grow corn and pumpkins.
  • The Indians also helped them build houses out of the trees.
  • When winter came again, the Pilgrims had plenty of food and a place to live.
  • The Pilgrims were so happy that they began to celebrate and then invited their friends , the Indians and shared everything in a big feast.
  • The feast lasted for a whole week and they ate turkey, fish, deer, sweet potatoes, corn and pumpkin.
  • But the first thing they did was to say a prayer to thank God for giving them friends, food, houses and a place to live where they could go to any church they wanted.
  • Thanksgiving is still celebrated in all the USA territory as a remembrance of that special gathering on November 26, 1861
  • Thank you and…
