Mission Activity

Our class is going to travel back in time to the first actual Thanksgiving celebration.  This celebration was between the Indians and Pilgrims as the Indians welcomed the Pilgrims to Plymouth Rock.  We are going to divide the class into two sections, half will be Indians and the other half will be Pilgrims.  Each of you will choose a dish of food to bring to the feast.
