(Optional) For 6º B: Thanksgiving Play

This play has a narrator, four Pilgrims, and three Native Americans. You can make costumes or just use hats. Its a lot of fun and a worthwhile learning experience!

Narrator – This is the story of the very first Thanksgiving. The Pilgrims have just come over on the Mayflower from England. The year was 1620. The place was, Massachusetts in the New World they called America.
Pilgrim #1 Thank goodness we have finally landed in the New World. Our boat ride from England was long and hard.
Pilgrim #2 It is cold here. I am not used to so much snow in the winter.
Pilgrim #3 Neither am I. Maybe there are other people around here who can help us.
Native American #1 Welcome to the New World. I am Squanto.
Native American #2 I am Massasoit. I am chief of my tribe.
Pilgrim #4 Welcome. We are Pilgrims who have just come here from England. We are cold and hungry and our food supply has run low.
Native American #3 Do not worry. We will show you how to catch fish in the streams.
Native American #1 And we will show you how to plant corn, pumpkins, and beans.
Pilgrim #1 You are very kind. And we will share some of our food with you.
Native Americans That is very good of you.
Narrator - Squanto, Massasoit, and the other members of their tribe taught the Pilgrims how to survive in the New World. And the Pilgrims helped the Indians in return. When the first harvest came in the fall of 1621, the Pilgrims made a special feast to share with the Native Americans. That is the story of the very first Thanksgiving.
