Many people live in the United States. They come from all over the world. Native American tribes lived here first.
The Pilgrims sailed to America in 1620. They met a Native American tribe called the Wampanoags. The Wampanoags helped the Pilgrims live.
They taught the Pilgrims how to grow corn. This helped the Pilgrims survive . The two groups did not always get along.
But they came together in 1621. They had a feast . It lasted for three days. It was the first Thanksgiving.
Today, many Americans still celebrate Thanksgiving. We gather with friends and family. We have a feast. We give thanks for all we have.
We are thankful for friends. We are thankful for family. We are thankful for the Wampanoags. They helped the Pilgrims long ago.
The first Thanksgiving meal was a feast. They ate deer. They ate corn. They ate fish. What do you eat on Thanksgiving?
