T: Ladies and gentlemen!

Welcome to our English Club!

Welcome to our party, dedicated to the most important day in the American year. People call this holiday Thanksgiving Day.


It is a national holiday, so most people don’t go to work. Families come together for that day. They decorate their houses with autumn fruit and flowers and prepare traditional American food.

You’ll learn some interesting facts about this holiday, listen to some poems and songs dedicated to it.

Please, be ready to answer the questions of “Quiz in number”. I think you will take pens and write down the dates and numbers.

P 1: Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen!

P 2: Good afternoon. Do you know that people in every country usually have great celebrations in autumn to thank God and nature for a plentiful harvest.

P 1: The American Thanksgiving began nearly four hundred years ago.

P 2: Let’s imagine how it all might have begun.


P 1: In September 1620 a small ship called “Mayflower” with 102 passengers left Plymouth, England for a better life in the New World.

P 2: Do you know where they were going? Where? Right you are. They were going to North America. They came to America for religious freedom.


Their voyage took 66 days.

P 1:It was in December 1620 they reached the shore of America in the place, which is now called the State Massachusetts.


They landed at Plymouth Rock

P 2:The first winter in the New World was difficult. The colonists had arrived too late to grow any crops, and without fresh food, half the colony, 46 of the original 102, died.

P 1:There were people living in America before the pilgrims arrived. These people were the Native American Indians.


The following spring the Indians taught the pilgrims how to grow corn, a new food for the colonists. They showed them other crops to grow and how to fish and to hunt the wild turkey. The Indians helped the colonists to survive through the cold winter and following spring.


P 3: In the autumn 1621 wonderful crops of vegetables were harvested by the colonists. So they were very thankful and decided to organize a great feast where turkey was the main dish. And 90 Indians, who had helped the Pilgrims survive their first year, were invited. The feast lasted three days. For fifty –five years there was no fighting between Pilgrims and the Indians.

P 4: The first “Thanksgiving” feast was not repeated the following year. It wasn’t until June of1676. As the years passed, many other colonists settled in America.


In 1789 George Washington, the first President of the United States, proclaimed the first Thanksgiving Day for all Americans. It is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November.

T: I suppose that any holiday is associated with certain symbols and food. What symbols of Thanksgiving Day do you know?


P 1: Turkey, corn, pumpkins and cranberry sauce are symbols which were represented at the first Thanksgiving. Now all of these symbols are drawn on holiday decorations and greeting cards.

(показывает открытки)

(указывает на «Рог изобилия», находящийся на столе)

The horn of plenty or cornucopia, wreaths of dried flowers, and dried, multi-colored «Indian corn» are often used as door and table decorations.

P 5: (указывает на «Индейку», находящуюся на столе)

Turkey is an American native first domesticated bird. It’s a traditional dish on Thanksgiving tables.

P 3: (указывает на тыкву и пирог из тыкв), находящиеся на столе)

Pumpkins and 'Pumpkin Pies' are a Thanksgiving favorite for about 400 years. Pilgrims probably made a pumpkin dish sweetened with honey or syrup. Pumpkin leaves were also used as salads.

P 1: (указывает на «Рог изобилия», находящийся на столе)

Cornucopia is the most common symbol of a harvest festival. A horn shaped container, it is filled with abundance of the Earth's harvest. It is also known as “the horn of plenty”. The traditional cornucopia was a curved goat’s horn filled to brim with fruit and grain.

P 5: (указывает на блюдо с кукурузой, находящееся на столе)

The use of corn meant the survival of the colonists. Beans are a special symbol of thanksgiving too. Native Americans taught the pilgrims to grow beans next to cornstalks.

P 4: Cranberry is a symbol of thanksgiving. The cranberry is a small sour berry. It grows in bogs. Originally called crane berry, it got its name from its pink blossoms and drooping head which reminded the pilgrim of a crane. The name was later changed to a Cranberry. Pilgrims soon found out a way to sweeten the bitten cranberries with maple sugar.

(указывает на соусник с клюквенным желе, находящееся на столе)

Sweet-sour cranberry sauce or cranberry jelly was on the first Thanksgiving table and it is served today.

By Ivy Eastwick

Thank you all my hands can hold –
Apples red and melons gold,
Yellow corn, both ripe and sweet
Peas and beans, so good to eat!
Thank you for all my eyes can see –
Lovely sunlight, field and tree,
White cloud boats in sea-deep sky,
Soaring birds and butterfly,
Thank you for all my ears can hear –
Birds song echoing far and near,
Songs of little stream, big sea,
Cricket, bullfrog, duck and bee!

P 2:You know that when people celebrate something, they do not only eat, they like to sing, dance, joke and guess riddles as well.
