Thanksgiving

On Thanksgiving we give thanks that there’s no school! But there’s much more to this holiday than that — Let Tim and Moby teach you about the real meaning of Thanksgiving in this BrainPOP movie! You’ll learn who the Pilgrims were; why they came to the New World; and who they met when they got here. You’ll also find out what happened to the Pilgrims during their first winter and how they managed to survive. Discover who was present at the first Thanksgiving, and what everyone had to be thankful for. Finally, you’ll find out what happened to the peace in subsequent years. So, enjoy your turkey — but don’t forget the history behind it!
