The History of Thanksgiving
In 1620, the pilgrims came from England to a new world on a ship called the Mayflower. When the pilgrims came to America they did not have muce to eat. The wampanoga Indians helped the pilgrims grow crops. Soon they started to harvest the crops the pilgrims planted. The pilgrims were happy to have all the food. The pilgrims decided to have a thanksgiving Day. The pilgrims wanted to share the harvest with the wampanoga Indians. It was their first thanksgiving. On their first thanksgiving. they dined on deer, roasted goose, codfish, and lobster.

The First Thanksgiving
If I was with the Pilgrims and the Indians I would help the Pilgrims a lot. I would help the Pilgrims and the Indians plant crops. I would help the Indians kill deer for dinner. I would try to help the Pilgrims that was sick and try to help the Pilgrims get better. I would help the Pilgrims and Indians cook the food in the pots that Pilgrims and the Indians cook in. I would try to make up a new game that me and the Pilgrims and Indians can play. I bet that it would be fun. I would feast with the Pilgrims and the Indians. I hope that I would learn more about them days with the Pilgrims and the Indians. I bet I will learn more about the old day with my cool teacher.
