1) The pilgrims arrived in North America in December 1620.

2) The Mayflower, but there were actually two ships! The Mayflower and the Speedwell. The Mayflower made it to North America but the Speedwell had to turn back.

3) The Atlantic Ocean. This is the ocean that separates North America from Europe.

4) The Pilgrims landed in Plymouth - Plymouth Rock! They saw Cape Cod first but did not land there because there were too many indians among other reasons.

5) They taught them to hunt for food and to plant their own food from seeds the Native Americans supplied. They also helped the Pilgrims build stronger houses.

6) Their clothing was made from animal skins. Mainly deer skin because they were the easiest to find.

7) In the early years in North America, the pilgrim kids did not go to school. Parents had to teach their own children or get a neighbor to help. On another note, they only took baths a few times a year!

8)George Washington proclaimed a National Day of Thanksgiving in 1789, but President Lincoln made it official by proclaiming the last Thursday in November as a national day of "Thanksgiving".
