Thanksgiving 2011 Thanksgiving 2011 Presentation Transcript

  •  
    • In 1620, about one hundred men, women, and children traveled for 66 days from England to “the New World” on a ship.
    This ship was called the Mayflower, and the people were the Pilgrims.
    • It was very cold and they didn’t have much to eat. Many people died.
    When the Pilgrims first arrived to America they were very happy, but the first winter was very hard for the Pilgrims.
  • An Indian called Squanto helped the Pilgrims. He showed them how to plant corn, how to grow beans, squash, and pumpkins, and how to build shelter.
  • The Pilgrims continued to work during the summer.  In October 1621 the Pilgrims and Indians had a harvest festival.  Ninety Wampanoag Indians joined the pilgrims in the celebration of eating, dancing, and playing games.
  • This feast was called the First Thanksgiving by President Abraham Lincoln.  In 1863, he proclaimed the fourth Thursday of every November the official, "Thanksgiving Day."
  • Today, Thanksgiving Day is a time to offer thanks, spend time with your family, and eat a large traditional dinner. It´s time of turkeys, pumpkin pie, holiday parades and giant balloons.
