Today we started reading the Magic Tree House book: Thanksgiving on Thursday by Mary Pope Osborne.
We made a bubble map about Thanksgiving, and talked about why we celebrate it.
Did you know that in 1621 the Pilgrims and Indians had a three day feast to celebrate the harvest. And in 1863, President Lincoln made it so that the last Thursday of November we be a day of thanksgiving.
Our class started talking about things that we are thankful for and here is what they said:
