An Educational Feast

Abraham Lincoln pre-kindergarten students enjoyed the school’s Thanksgiving Feast with their classmates in a dining room festively decorated with autumn-colored leaves and turkey characters. Students expressed their individuality by wearing different headdresses – representing Pilgrims, Native Americans and live and cooked turkeys – and were served a traditional Thanksgiving meal complete with turkey, mashed potatoes, corn and biscuits.

The lunch, which culminated classroom lessons on the fall holiday, reinforced the concepts of unity and acceptance of others and illustrated the diversity upon which the United States was founded.
