The First Thanksgiving

Hello, we are pilgrims. A pilgrim is a person who moves to a place far away for religious freedom.

My family and I decided to move from England
to America. We wanted to worship God the way
we felt comfortable doing. We got on a ship
called the Mayflower and we crossed the
Atlantic Ocean.

It was a hard journey. There were so many
people on the ship. Many people became ill.
After six weeks, we landed on a place called Plymouth Rock. It is located in Massachusetts.

It was very cold and we had no place to live. So
we quickly chopped some wood and build
homes for shelter. We did not have much food
to eat.

We met a group of Native Americans that were
very nice. They helped us a lot. They gave us seeds and taught us how to grow crops. They also taught us how to fish.

We became friends with the Native Americans.
In the Fall time, the crops were ready for harvest.
We were very grateful to the Natives for all their
help. We wanted to show our gratitude so we
decided to hold a big celebration.

We hunted and cooked for many days.
We cooked turkey, duck, and deer along with
fish, pumpkins, squash, corn, sweet potatoes,
and cranberries.

We invited the Native Americans that had
helped us so much during the first year. The
celebration lasted for three days.

We gave our thanks for all we had.
Today many people celebrate Thanksgiving Day
and give thanks for all they have.
