Storyboard Description

Symbols of Thanksgiving

Storyboard Text

  • Pilgrims and Native Americans
  • Corn, Pumpkins, and Gourds
  • Autumn Leaves
  • We remember the friendship made between two peoples.
  • Corn was a staple to the Native Americans and they taught the Pilgrims to grow it. Pumpkins, squash, and other gourds are vegetables harvested in the fall.
  • Thanksgiving occurs during autumn. It is after the plentiful summer, but before the cold winter, when little food is to be found.
  • Wheat
  • Thanksgiving Symbols
  • Turkey
  • Cornucopia
  • Wheat is usually harvested during the fall. Wheat is used to make flour for bread.
  • At Thanksgiving, we eat turkey, a bird that was available to people in the time of the first Thanksgivings. In England, they typically ate goose at the harvest time.
  • The cornucopia is also known as the "horn of plenty." It represents the wealth and the bounty of the fall harvest.
