Warch the video below to learn about the origins of Thanksgiving and how this day became a national holiday 

Can you answer these questions about Thanksgiving now:
  1. Who started the tradition of Thanksgiving? Why? How long did the feast last?
  2. What is Sarah Josefa Hale best known for? How many years did she fight for the holiday? Who was the President that listened to her pleas? What did he declare?
  3. What is the Mayflower?
  4. Who were the Pilgrims?
  5. Who was Squanto?
  6. Why is the nursery rhyme "Mary Had a Little Lamb" mentioned in the video?

Here are the lyrics to the nursery rhyme:

Mary had a little lamb,
His fleece was white as snow,
And everywhere that Mary went,
The lamb was sure to go.

He followed her to school one day,
Which was against the rule,
It made the children laugh and play
To see a lamb at school.

And so the teacher turned it out,
But still it lingered near,
And waited patiently about,
Till Mary did appear.

"Why does the lamb love Mary so?"
The eager children cry.
"Why, Mary loves the lamb, you know."
The teacher did reply.

and this is how the nursery rhyme sounds, sung by Paul McCartney and Wings:
