Campbellsville Elementary School students recently learned about the Thanksgiving story.
In Hailey Ogle’s first-grade class, students recently made bracelets with different color beads to represent a part of the Thanksgiving story.
Students used pipe cleaners and beads to make their bracelets.
The black bead represented the Pilgrims, who left England searching for religious freedom.
White beads stood for the sails of the Mayflower.
The blue bead represented the ocean the Pilgrims traveled across.
Dark green beads stood for the new land the Pilgrims reached.
Silver stood for the long, snowy winter the Pilgrims faced.
The lime green bead represented the new spring that gave the Pilgrims hope.
The tan bead stood for the Indians who helped the Pilgrims survive.
The last four colors of the bracelet stood for the Thanksgiving feast, including orange for the pumpkins, brown for the turkey, yellow for the corn and red for the cranberries.
After making their bracelets, students wore them and took them home.
And, after their bracelets were made, students colored a book so they could remember the Thanksgiving story and share it with their parents.
