Leader: Good afternoon, dear boys and girls! Happy Thanksgiving!

Today we celebrate one of the most favourite holidays in the USA-Thanksgiving Day. It is usually celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November. It was first celebrated in 1621not by American people, but by Pilgrim Fathers, who came to the New World (America) from England on the ship Mayflower.

During the winter of 1621 about half of 100 passengers of Mayflower died. But Indians helped the Pilgrims to survive they taught them to plant, hunt and fish. Pilgrims built their houses with the help of Native Americans (Indians). The first Thanksgiving Day was in October 1621. The Pilgrims invited Their Indian friends to share their feast, got after their first harvest. For three days the Pilgrims and the Indians shared their food, such as: cornflakes, popcorn, pumpkin pie, venison, vegetables, sweet potatoes, fish, squash, creamed onions. They played games, dances and had athletic contests.

Usually all members of the family gather at home of their parents on this day. The family eats a traditional dinner-turkey and pumpkin pie, squash, vegetables and fish.

After that many people go to watch football games, some people play games at home.

400 years ago British people left England and sailed across the Atlantic Ocean to start a new life in the New World. They left England for different reasons: 1) religious freedom; 2) to become rich because of gold, silver, sugar, jewels. When they came, they decided to build a small town Jamestown in honor of English King. Pilgrims built their houses but later they burnt down. They didnt give up.

Pocahontas was 12 years old girl, the daughter of the chief of Algonquin tribes. In spite of fighting Pocahontas brought food to the settlers. They were surprised and invited her to come in. She saw many interesting things and tried on clothes and learnt new words of English.

Then Pocahontas saved John Smith.

Pocahontas became a kind of bridge between the Indians and the colonists. But the war went on. One day Pocahontas was kidnapped by the colonists. The colonists said that Powhatan (her father) could see her only if he stopped the war. He said: No.

After that Pocahontas was converted into Christianity and married John Rolfe.

Her new name was Rebecca; she gave birth to a son, Thomas. They turned back to England. It was a sensation. Nobody in England saw Native Americans. She was really beautiful.

In 1617 she fell ill. She decided to come back to the New World, but the doctor said, she was too ill to travel. So she stayed in England and died when she was 22.

Leader: Today we are not ordinary students. But we are Pilgrim Fathers, Indians and Pumpkin Pie. It means that you will be divided into 3 teams. Lets listen to their captains.


Im a little pilgrim on the run

Here is my knife and here is my gun

When I go out hunting, here is my shout-

Bear and buffalo-better watch out!


Im a little Indian on the go

Here is my arrow and here is my bow

When I go out hunting, hear me shout-

Bear and buffalo-Watch out!

Pumpkin Pie

Pum-pum-pum-pum Pumpkin Pie

I like turkey the dressings cool

With potatoes round a gravy pool,

The thing that really makes me sigh

Is pum-pum-pum-pum Pumpkin pie!

When it is Thanksgiving Day

Aunt Edna comes from far away.

I kiss her cheek, it makes her cry

I do it for Pumpkin Pie

Oh! pum-pum-pum-pum Pumpkin pie!

The tables set, I bow my head,

Then my private prayer is said,

Thanks for your blessing from on high

This pum-pum-pum-pum Pumpkin pie!

The time is close, I start to stutter

And stick my finger in the butter

As mom asks, Now? Oh! Yeah! I cry,

A big high five for pumpkin pie!


Pum-pum-pum-pum Pumpkin pie!

Poems about turkey

We eat turkey, we eat turkey

Oh! So good. Oh! So good!

Always on Thanksgiving, always on Thanksgiving!

Yummy-yummy-yummy! Yummy-yummy-yummy!

I eat turkey, I eat turkey

Yes I do, Yes I do

Turkey in my tummy, Turkey in my tummy,

Good for me, good for you.

A turkey is a funny bird

His head goes wobble-wobble

And he knows just one word


This plump turkey spread his tail like a fan.

This plump turkey, away he ran.

This plump turkey flew up in a tree.

This plump turkey gobbled at me.

This plump turkey said, "I'll leave right away,

So-the cook can't find me on Thanksgiving Day."


Week before Thanksgiving

I limp around real strange.

Huddle in the corner

As though I have the mange.

All the other turkeys

Just gobble, gobble on.

Im silent, and I act

As if my gobbles gone.

Everyone is thankful

On Thanksgiving Day

Friday its forgotten.

You all go on your way.

I know what thankful is

So listen when I say

Its great to be a turkey,

After Thanksgiving Day.

Over the river

Over the river and through the wood

To Grandfathers house we go.

The horse knows the way

To carry the sleigh

Through white and drifted snow.

Over the river and through the wood

Oh! How the wind does blow!

It stings the toes

And bites the nose

As over the ground we go.

Over the river and through the wood

To have a first-rate play.

Hear the bells

Ting-a ling-ling!

Hurrah for Thanksgiving Day!

Over the river and through the wood

Trot fast, my dapple gray!

Spring over the hound,

For this is Thanksgiving Day.

Over the river and through the wood

Now Grandmothers cap I spy!

Hurrah for fun!

Is the pudding done?

Hurrah for the Pumpkin pie!

Row, row, row your boat.

Row, row, row your boat

Im thankful for my friends

And my family.

Im thankful for the good and I eat

Im happy to be me!

All things bright and beautiful

All things bright and beautiful

All creatures great and small.

All things wise and wonderful:

The lord God made them all.

Each little flower that opens,

Each little bird that sings,

God made their glowing colors,

And made their tiny wings.

The purple-headed mountains

The river running by,

The sunset and the morning

That brightens up the sky.

The cold wind in the winter.

The pleasant summer sun,

The ripe fruits in the garden:

God made them every one

God gave us eyes to see them,

And lips that we might tell

How great is God Almighty,

Who has made all things well.

An Indian Song

This is the way we beat our drum

Beat our drum, beat our drum

This is the way we beat our drum

We are the Wampanoag.

Leader: Now, lets sing a Thanksgiving Song

As I was walking that ribbon of highway

I saw above me that endless sky-way

I saw below me that golden valley

This land was made for you and me

This land is your land, this land is my land

From California to the New York island

From the red-wood forest to the Gulf stream water

This land was made for you and me.
