The First Thanksgiving
It’s the year 1620. A group of people from England arrive in America. Their ship is called Mayflower. The people want to find new homes in America. But it is winter. They are cold and hungry.
Native Americans help them. They give them food and warm clothes. In spring, the Native Americans help them to grow corn and pumpkins. They also give them some turkeys. In the autumn, the people from England have a big party. They want to thank the Native Americans for their help. They eat turkey and pumpkin. This is the story of the First Thanksgiving.
