Kindergartners at Hampton Bays Elementary School celebrated Thanksgiving in their classrooms by learning more about the holiday and taking part in several hands-on activities. 

On Nov. 20, students in Mary Beth Motz’s class re-enacted the Pilgrims’ Mayflower voyage across the Atlantic. Dressed as Pilgrims, they sat in a cardboard Mayflower as their teacher read “The First Thanksgiving” by Linda Hayward. The students also learned to plant beans, corn and squash the Wampanoag way. 

Meanwhile, kindergartners in Liliana Cacace and Meredith Ollennu’s class dressed as Pilgrims and signed the Mayflower Compact. They also learned about the Native Americans and made beaded necklaces.
