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.
