Second Graders Dress For Thanksgiving

Just like the very first Thanksgiving, at the Spring Hill Primary school in Longview today, there were pilgrims and indians.

Second graders dressed up Monday and got a chance to learn first hand what life was like in 1620. Some students held a spelling bee in the dark and others made their own butter by shaking whipped cream and salt in little jars.

And a Thanksgiving day celebration wouldn't be complete without the feast. "Well today we're eating stew, turkey and rolls and butter and we made a little turkey treat," says second grade student Tanner Orman.

Kids also got a chance to say what they were thankful for this year.  Nearly all said they were thankful for the families and their teachers.
