The First Thanksgiving
What really happened? For gifted ed class 11/25-2013
What was the first Thanksgiving really like? did they have turkey and cranberries like we do today? After learning about it today at scholastic.com, I know that it was very different than it is today.
First, I learned that they didn't have turkey! They probably had duck and corn and things like that. I learned that they didn't sit together all at one table! They sat at separate tables! Sometimes the Indians and the Pilgrims ate together and sometimes they ate together. I learned that there was a high table and important people sat at it. I also learned what it was like to live on the Mayflower. I learned more about some of the people. I learned how they made things like a fishing net.
