All About the First Thanksgiving

The History of Thanksgiving

Each year on the third Thursday of November, American families celebrate Thanksgiving. When America was first beginning, Pilgrims sailed on the Mayflower to reach this new land. When they arrived they struggled to live. Luckily they met the Wampanoag Indians. These Indians helped teach them how to hunt and survive. To celebrate, they joined together for a feast.

What Are You Thankful For?

We have so many blessings. On Thanksgiving we join together to remember all that we have to be thankful for. What are you thankful for? Families, friends, homes, food, water, heat, clothes. Think about the blessings you have in your life.
