Mishawaka students took part in annual Thanksgiving feast Monday

Mishawaka, Ind. Monday, Mishawaka elementary students got to share what they've been learning about early American history with each other, during a Thanksgiving feast.

1st and 2nd graders from Liberty Elementary met students at Twin Branch Elementary for the event.

It's a kind of grand finally for students, who have been studying Native American and Pilgrim history in depth.

Teachers say the feast provides a forum for kids to share what they're thankful for, and really understand what the first thanksgiving was all about.

“And it's an integrated curriculum where we're able to integrate math and language and reading arts, so this is a big day for the kids," says Karen Landis a 1st, 2nd grade teacher at Liberty Elementary.

"Our parents and our family and our friends, that's what we're thankful for and that's why we're celebrating Thanksgiving," says student Timothy Kaye.

Kids prepared for the dinner by making head dresses and Native American gifts to share with their friends.
