The Story of the First Thanksgiving


The first Thanksgiving had little to do with roasted turkey and pumpkin pie.  It was a time of thanksgiving to God for His wonderful provision in the lives of a brave group of people we know as Pilgrims.  One of these provisions was an Indian named Squanto.  Squanto had been captured by a cruel ship captain when he was a teenager and taken to Europe.  Here he learned English and after some time sailed back to his home in America.  Sadly he found that his entire tribe had been wiped out by disease.  Taken in by Chief Massasoit, Squanto learned about these people called Pilgrims who were living where his people had once lived. Squanto came to live with the Pilgrims and showed them how to catch eels and fish and how to raise crops, hunt in silence, gather nuts and berries and tap maple trees for sugar.  Carol incorporates finger-plays, songs and puppets in an exciting, interactive program.  Recommended grades:  pre-K-3
