Conditions of Use
I recently went to Strawbery Banke for a field trip to learn more about Thanksgiving and why we celebrate it. I liked it when people acted like they lived in the 1900's. When you knocked on the house they would pretend it was theirs.
One thing that I learned was that there was this night that the poor people would knock on the rich peoples door and beg for food and goods. The rich would put different ingredients in the pillow cases that the poor carry around to different houses.
Matzah is a type of a large chip that many people turned into many different things.
The last thing that I learned was that when Thanksgiving came they would usually make 100 pies to preserve the food. I enjoyed visiting there and hope to do it again.
