While simplistic more symbolic than historic, English Language Learners at the K-2 level can retell the story of the First Thanksgiving. We create Native American Headresses and Pilgrim Hats from construction papers. Narrators are dressed in costumes we purchased from Party City. We made a plymouth rock and Mayflower using old card board and paint. We view this as an introduction to the origins of the holiday and early American History while teaching the students that much of it is folklore.
