The Mayflower delivered a few pilgrims early this year, but natives were prepared to greet them anyway.
In celebration of the Thanksgiving holiday, kindergarten students at South Street Early Learning Center dressed as pilgrims and native Americans and shared a "Thanksgiving feast" in place of a snack.
"We're having a feast with the pilgrims and Indians," student Alana Stuart explained prior to the meal.

Kindergarten students at South Street Early Learning Center took time out to enjoy a “Thanksgiving Feast” as a snack on Tuesday. Pictured are students in Mrs. Massa and Mrs. Ritzert’s classes.
The students learned how an assembly line worked and used the concept to put together their own "Thanksgiving" trail mix.
Students also learned Thanksgiving songs, sometimes including words they could read.
The event was just part of Thanksgiving activities at the schools.
"They just learned about the Thanksgiving story," kindergarten teacher Katie Keeports said. "They made their own costumes."
Students in all nine kindergarten classes participated in Thanksgiving activities. Some classes shared their feast with another class.
