Hello readers. Today we’ve got you free printable Thanksgiving Pilgrims coloring pages. Thanksgiving is an important annual celebration, which has its root in the history of the United States. The first celebration of Thanksgiving took place in the year 1621. This was celebrated in the month of October by the Pilgrims in the New World to mark the first harvest of autumn.
Pilgrims were actually a group of people who founded the Plymouth Colony. This group of people was religious in nature and they would often feel the discrimination by the Archbishop. This congregation kept on moving farther from England seeking their freedom to worship. In order to find their freedom, they had to travel to different parts of the Netherland and finally got permission to settle down in the New World. This journey to the new world was full of disturbances but their will to win made it possible.
The first Thanksgiving was celebrated by giving thanks to the Native Americans who helped the Pilgrims to survive their first year in the Plymouth colony. The annual celebration of Thanksgiving Day is an informative and effective way to teach children about American history. Now let’s check out our free Thanksgiving pilgrims coloring sheets to print.
