SCRIPT:

 

NARRATOR: The Pilgrims that were living in England were unhappy because there was religious persecution.

 

WOMAN PILGRIM 1: We can`t go on like this anymore.

 

MAN PILGRIM 1: I know, we don`t have religious freedom, but  we have to do what our King James said.

 

WOMAN PILGRIM 1: I don`t understand why he doesn`t allow us to attend the church of our choice.

 

MAN PILGRIM 1: I think we should leave England and find a place where we can worship God in our own way.

 

WOMAN PILGRIM 1: I agree with you.  We have to talk to other people and see who wants to join us.

 

NARRATOR: So the pilgrims left England in September, 1620 in a a Ship called the Mayflower with 102 people aboard and headed to America.

 

GIRL PILGRIM 1: Mom, I am hungry, we only eat salted meat and dry bisquits.

 

WOMAN PILGRIM 1: I know, we have been in this boat for almost two months.  But I am sure that we will soon get off this ship.

 

MAN PILGRIM 1: Everybody, Look over there, I can see land!

 

WOMAN PILGRIM 1: I told you, we are almost there.

 

NARRATOR: When they landed, the Pilgrims needed food to eat.

 

MEN PILGRIM: Come everybody!  We have to look for fresh food.

 

MAN PILGRIM 2: Let´s get separated to find the food.

 

WOMAN PILGRIM 2: Yes, I will go this way, and you go that way.

 

GIRL PILGRIM 2: Hey, look!  I have some berries.

 

BOY PILGRIM 1: And I found some seeds.

 

NARRATOR: The first winter in America was long and hard.

 

MAN PILGRIM 3: It´s cold. Everybody put on your heavy clothes.

 

WOMAN PILGRIM 3: And let´s protect our children.

 

NARRATOR: Many of the pilgrims became ill.

 

BOY PILGRIM 2: I feel sick, mother.

 

WOMAN PILGRIM 4: Somebody help me!  My son is sick.

 

WOMAN PILGRIM 3: Give him this plant, he will feel much better.

 

WOMAN PILGRIM 4: Thank you.

 

NARRATOR: Then Spring came and everybody was joyful.

 

CHILDREN: What a beautiful day!.  Let´s dance and play.

 

NARRATOR: One day a kind Indian came to the village.

 

CHIEF INDIAN: Hello People.  I want to offer you my help.

 

MAN PILGRIM 4: Welcome to our village.  We appreciate your help.

 

NARRATOR: Soon more Indians came.

 

INDIANS: We can show you how to grow your own food.

 

MAN PILGRIM 4: Please, tell us how.

 

INDIAN 1: These are corn seeds.  This is how you should plant them.

 

NARRATOR: And the Indians showed the pilgrims how to plant corn, and wheat, and other vegetables.  One of  the Indians was called Squanto.

 

SQUANTO: I want to be your friend.  We also want to teach you how to hunt and fish.

 

INDIAN 2: We will hunt quail and turkey.  Come let´s go to the forest.

 

NARRATOR: Then they went to the forest to hunt wild animals.  And when summer ended they wanted to have a feast.

 

MAN PILGRIM 1: Now that we have plenty of food, and many new friends, let´s celebrate.

 

WOMAN PILGRIM 1: Yes, let´s give thanks for all the wonderful things we have, for our food, and for our friends.

 

ALL PILGRIMS: Squanto, tell your people to come with us to join us in a big feast of Thanksgiving.

 

SQUANTO: Yes, it will be a very special holiday.  My people will bring wild turkeys and fish.

 

NARRATOR: The Indians came to the feast.

 

WOMAN PILGRIM 2: Let´s set the table and put this table cloth.

 

WOMAN PILGRIM 3: I will put the fruit.

 

WOMAN PILGRIM 4: And these are the vegetables.

 

MAN PILGRIM 3 AND 4: Everybody, come and sit down.

 

NARRATOR: And everyone gave thanks.

 

WOMEN PILGRIM : We give thanks for our food and for our friends.

 

MEN PILGRIM: And for our many blessings.
