  • Read the book Mollys Pilgrim, by Barbara Cohen.
  • After reading this book, ask the students whether
    their opinions about Pilgrims have changed.
  • Record their answers on the chart paper.

    of construction paper.

    thankful for on each feather.
  • After the class is done, have students take turns
    sharing with their peers.
  • Display turkeys in the hall.

Activity ThreeMaking Butter
  • Discuss with the class the differences of the
    food that the Pilgrims ate and the food that we
    eat in our daily lives.
  • Explain that the Pilgrims could not just go to
    the store and buy supplies, they had to make all
    of their own food.
  • Tell the class that they are going to try to make
    butter.
  • Fill the jars half full with whip cream.
  • Screw the lid on and then shake the jar for about
    five minutes.

    not shake the jar until lumps appear.

    butter they have at home.

  • Over the river and the through the wood
  • To Grandfathers house we go.
  • The horse knows the way
  • To carry the sleigh
  • Through white and drifted snow.
  • Over the river and through the wood
  • Oh, how the wind does blow!
  • It stings the toes
  • And bites the nose,
  • As over the ground we go.

19
Song Cont
  • Over the river and through the wood,
  • Trot fast, my dapple gray!
  • Spring over the ground
  • Like a hunting hound,
  • For this is Thanksgiving Day.
  • Over the river and through the wood
  • Now Grandmothers cap I spy!
  • Hurrah for fun!
  • Is the pudding done?
  • Hurrah for the pumpkin pie!

Activity FiveThanksgiving Discussion and Feast
  • Read the story Cranberry Thanksgiving, by Wende
    and Harry Devlin.
  • Assign the students either a Pilgrim or Native
    American.
  • Have them act out a play about how they may feel
    in this role.
  • What would they think of the other group? How
    would the Native Americans feel towards the new
    Pilgrims? What would the Pilgrims feel about the
    Native Americans?
  • After discussion, have the students sit together
    and enjoy a Thanksgiving meal.
