Characters: Story-teller, the Pilgrims, Indians.

Story-teller: On September 16,1620 the Pilgrims sailed from Plymouth, England. The ship was called the Mayflower, they landed at Plymouth Rock, in Massachusetts, on December 26,1620.

The 1st Pilgrim: Oh, I see a land! Look!

All Pilgrims: Land! Hurrah! Land!

The 2nd Pilgrim: Look! There are people there. They welcome us.

The Indian Leader: Welcome to our land! Who are you? Where are you from?

The 1st Pilgrim: We are Pilgrims. We are from England. We have come for new lives. And who are you? The Indian Leader: We are Indians. We have been living here for a long time. You may stay here and live on our land.

Pilgrims: Thank you very much!

Story-teller: The first winter was a terrible time. The Pilgrims were hungry, sick and cold. Many people died. Then the Native Americans, the Indians, helped the Pilgrims.

The 3rd Pilgrims: We have nothing to eat. Many people have died and many are sick. What shall we do? (Появляются индейцы с корзинками еды).

The 1st Indian: Hello! We have brought food to you: bread, vegetables, fruit, corn, and other things.

The 3rd Pilgrim: Oh! Thank you very much! You have saved our lives! We'll never forget you!

Story-teller: Spring came. Indians taught the Pilgrims to plant corn, to build houses, to hunt, to fish. In other words - how to survive in America.

(Индейцы показывают пилигримам, как выращивать кукурузу, строить дома, ловить рыбу, охотиться).

The 2nd Indian: We'll teach you how to plant corn, build houses, hunt and fish. Our land is very rich.

The 4th Pilgrim: Thanks! We'll pray for you! We'll be good pupils.

Story-teller: The crops did well, and in the fall (autumn) of 1621 the Pilgrims had a great harvest. They were very thankful and decided to celebrate with a feast. The Pilgrims invited the Indian friends to share this Thanksgiving feast.

The 2nd Pilgrim: Welcome to our Thanksgiving feast! We are grateful to you for many things. But the main is: you helped us when we suffered greatly. And we'll never forget those days!

(Индейцы и пилигримы садятся за праздничный стол. На столе: индейка (муляж), клюква, фрукты, кукуруза, пирог и др. Вождь индейцев произносит здравицу в честь пилигримов).

The Indian Leader:

Heap high the board with plenteous cheer,

And gather to the feast,

And toast the sturdy Pilgrim band

Whose courage never ceased.

(Ставьте на столы обильное угощение и собирайтесь на праздник, Поднимем тост за стойких пилигримов, чьё мужество никогда не иссякнет).

The 1st Pilgrim: Thanks a lot! Now let's have a fun! Let's recite poems and sing songs.

The 4th Pilgrim:

(Это стихотворение могут рассказывать несколько пилигримов)


Pilgrim children worked hard all day.
Pilgrim children had little time to play.
The first child chopped lots of wood.
The second child helped make the family's food.
The third helped keep the horses fed.
The fourth child made a mattress for his bed.
The fifth child made soap and candle.
The sixth child turned a meat-roasting handle.
Pilgrim children worked hard all day.
Pilgrim children hat little time to play.

The 3rd Pilgrim:


This plump turkey spread his tail like a fan.
This plump turkey, away he ran.
This plump turkey flew up in a tree.
This plump turkey gobbled at me.
This plump turkey said, "I'll leave right away.
So the cook can't find me on Thanksgiving Day".

Indians: And now let's sing an Indian song. While singing use pantomime to show the actions in this active song

This is the way we beat our drum, Beat our drum, beat our drum, This is the way we beat our drum, We are the Wampanoag. (Continue with these verses: plant our corn, grind our corn, hunt for food, wash our clothes).

Story-teller: Thanksgiving was proclaimed a national day of observance by Congress of the United States in 1941. Today, Thanksgiving is the unofficial beginning of the Christmas season and in many cities Thanksgiving marks the arrival of Santa Claus.

Ведущий 2-Do you think that the lives of outstanding people are full of happiness and joy?

Ведущий 2-Do you want to be famous in your future?

Ведущий 1-On the one hand, I want to be famous because I want my parents and my country to be proud of me. On the other hand, being an outstanding person is a great responsibility and it is very difficult. So, I do not really know if I want to be famous.
