30 Nov 5th Grade Class Visits Hearthstone
Our class had a wonderful visit to Hearthstone this last week. We had the privilege of presenting a short play about the Pilgrims’ voyage to the New World and their friendship with the Native Americans upon landing in Plymouth Harbor. I explained some of the interesting things we learned through our play. For example, women didn’t have legal rights back then, which is why none of the women’s names appear on the Mayflower Compact. We also learned that several of the food items we eat at Thanksgiving were not part of the first Thanksgiving meal. It made us all very thankful for pumpkin pie. Students also presented a scripture that our class had memorized from Luke 1, titled “The Benedictus.” This scripture is a song of praise and thanksgiving to the Lord. It was the perfect coupling to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday.
