Thanksgiving Day celebration

On the fourth Thursday of November, Americans celebrate Thanksgiving Day. For this reason, our language assistant, Tyler has prepared a presentation to explain this festivity to our students.
 It is a special day for American families and it started when the founders of a colony in North America were helped by a native Indian when they were about to die because of poor crops.He taught them how to grow crops, to hunt and to fish.
The governor of the colony decided to celebrate a dinner for the Pilgrims and ninety native Americans. This was the first Thanksgiving day.
Our language assistant explained that nowadays, the traditional thanksgiving meal is similar to the first. People eat roast turkey with cranberry sauce, potatoes, corn, etc. We also watched a video about the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Then they drew their hand on a paper in order to form a turkey, and wrote on each finger what they were thankful for. Finally we sang a typical song about this festivity.
