Your mission is to visit "The First Thanksgiving Meal" website and review the menu items that the Pilgrims served at their Thanksgiving feast.  Then you will need to think back and try to remember some of the things that your family makes at their Thanksgiving dinner to celebrate this wonderful holiday!  Complete your mission activity and hand it in to your teacher so they can scan your masterpiece to place on the Internet!
