This historical reenactment of the original Thanksgiving depicts the skills and life style of the Native American tribes living in the New England area. Their knowledge and willingness to assist the struggling colonists during that first year led to mutual respect. At the end of the initial harvest in 1621, both groups combined their annual celebrations into the first Thanksgiving. Part of the Colonial Life Series.
Great contextual information on Thanksgiving for early settlers.
I recommend this movie for early elementary grades. Clear. Simple. Very visual.
