Teacher. Good morning everybody. Glad to see you. As you know, today is the fourth Thursday of November. So we're celebrating Thanksgiving Day. It's one of the greatest national holidays of the United States of America. Almost every culture in the world has held celebrations of thanks for a plentiful harvest.
Pupil 1 Thank you for all my hands can hold-
Apples red and melons gold.
Yellow corn both ripe and sweet.
Pears and beans so good to eat.
Pupil 2. The American Thanksgiving holiday began almost four hundred years ago. Just a few words about the history of this holiday.
Pupil 1 Thanksgiving was first celebrated in autumn 1621 by the Pilgrims who sailed to America from England in September 1620. A small ship «Mayflower» crossed the Atlantic Ocean. There were over а hundred people on board the ship.
S. I'm greeting you, Massasoit, the chief of the Wampanoag tribe.
М. I'm greeting you, Squanto!
S. I've come to say that a big boat is approaching our land. I saw it today in the morning from the rock. It has a lot of people.
М. How many? (показывает двумя руками 5раз) = 50
М. Do you think they are enemies or friends? We don't want to have a war. We don't want to have blood and death.
S. You are right, Massasoit. But we must be ready for everything. I am going to meet them and find out the purpose of their arrival.
M. Be careful. I wish you good luck! (уходят)
Pupil 1 They travelled to America for religious freedom. It was December when they
reached Plymouth Rock.
Do you know the story
Of the first Thanksgiving Day
Founded by our Pilgrim Fathers
In that time so far away?
They had given for religion
Wealth and comfort-yes, and more-
Left their homes and friends and children
For unknown barren shore.
We shall never know the terrors,
That they faced years ago,
But for all their struggles gave us,
We our gratitude can show.
And the children of praise or pray
Should bless God for those brave Pilgrims,
1 MAN: Thanks God, we have arrived! Luckily for us we have survived in this cruel trip. Unfortunately, many our friends have died.
1 WOMAN: They died because the food and water on board the ship were very bad, and our Pilgrims had many terrible diseases. But we don't know what we shall meet here.
2MAN: Tomorrow we shall begin cutting trees, but during the first time we shall sleep on the ship.
WOMAN: Look! Somebody is coming! And his skin is red!
S. I'm greeting you, pale faced people! My name is Squanto! Why have you arrived here? What do you want?
WOMAN: We have come from England. This country is very far from here. There we had many problems and we want to begin a new life here.
1 WOMAN: Many of us died during the trip, some of us are still sick. We have nothing to eat and we have no weapon.
1 MAN: Winter is coming, but we have no houses and warm clothes. We won't do you any harm. Help us please!
S. OK, my people will help you! (уходят)
Pupil 2 The Pilgrims arrived too late to grow any crops. Their first winter was very hard and a lot of people died of hunger, cold and illnesses. There were people living in America before pilgrims arrived. They were aborigines, the native American Indians.
Pupil I The Indians taught the first settlers how to hunt and fish, to plant and grow corn, wheat and pumpkins. The crops did well and in autumn 1621 the first settlers had a great harvest. They prepared a great dinner and invited their Indian friends to share the three day feast. The Indians brought food too. They killed some deer and turkey and they even brought popcorn.
Teacher Well, as you see we have some guests among us. Let's greet them.
The Indians (with a drum and a basket full of vegetables) sing their merry song.
One little, two little, three little Indian,
Four little, five little, six little Indian
Seven little, eight little, nine little Indian
Ten little Indian boo-oys!
Ten little, nine little, eight little Indian
Seven little, six little, five little Indian,
Four little, three little two little Indian
One little Indian bo-o-y!
Teacher Dear guests! Welcome to our party! And who are you?
Indian I We are Wampanoag Indians. Listen to our favourite song.
This is the way we beat our drums (3 times)
This is the way we beat our drums We are Wampanoag

When the Pilgrims sailed to this land
They met a friendly Indian band
The Indians taught them to plant, hunt and fish
Then they all had a feast with many a tasty dish.
Губернатор Вильям Бредфорд. We have gathered a rich harvest. Nobody will be hungry this winter. Oh, thanks God! (складывает руки в молитве). №12
Dear Lord, on this Thanksgiving Day
With grateful hearts we bow and pray
For blessing given from our birth
Exceeding way beyond our worth
For friends who've proven to be true;
For pets, which count as friendship too?
For home and country, health and love
All sent to us from Heaven above.
Lord, please, continue to be near
And guide us from Heaven above.
WOMAN: We have a lot of food: cucumbers, carrots, cabbages, turnips, radishes, onions and beets.
WOMAN: Our men hunted wild turkeys, geese and ducks.
WOMAN: Thank our guests Indians for they have brought five deer and a lot of fish with them.
WOMAN: Now we can treat our men and guests with roast turkey, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie and sweet potatoes. Let these dishes always be on our tables, (уходят)
