The Real Thanksgiving
By mfpoore1, Updated
Students will identify the driving ideology of the Puritans and analyze its effects on the early Puritan colonies. Students will compare and contrast common Thanksgiving practices from what occurred during the first "Thanksgiving".
We have read about the Indians and their houses
We know that the Indians had a different way of living than the Puritans did, but they still, technically, have a roof over their heads.
The Puritans had more contemporary housing, but they were working hard to adapted to this new world.
Their were more Natives than Puritans
They met in a clearing in the woods, known as Plymouth. This had been a land once inhabited by Natives, but they all died. The Puritans plan was to fire their arms mainly to keep the Natives afraid of them. The Puritans had duck or fowl, and the Natives brought deer. We always here of how everyone go along, but the Puritans did not like the Natives or their culture.
The Puritans will be happy to just be alone and wish the Natives would go away, but this does not seem fair for Natives as this land was theirs first.
