This is a picture created by Brittany about the foods served at the first Thanksgiving. She drew a brown turkey and a fish. She also has an ear of corn, complete with kernels.  The green circle is a cucumber and Brittany told me that pickles come from cucumbers. She also has a pumpkin.

This is a  another picture drawn by a kindergartner about the foods served at the First Thanksgiving. Martina drew grapes, a yellow squash, and a pumpkin. She drew a turkey leg and also a small picture of a turkey. She drew the leg because that's her favorite part of the turkey.
