The First Thanksgiving

I learned a lot about the first Thanksgiving today from this website. I learned a lot especially about the trip to the colonies. I learned that on September 6th, 1620 the journey from England began. The trip was about two months long. Many of the people never went to the deck and stayed in the holding area. There were also many violent storms at sea.

I also learned a lot about their culture and the feast. The Indians and the pilgrims both had many things not in common. Their houses were very different because the pilgrims used wood and the Indians used bark and twigs. The Feast was mostly food they gathered themselves. They also had games. The children played childlike games and the adults had target shooting contests. It sounded like a very fun thanksgiving.
