Kids Learn the Real Thanksgiving Story at History Center

First Catholic Mass, St. Augustine, Fl, 1565
The first Thanksgiving happened in Florida? And they ate…alligator? That’s just the beginning of the real first Thanksgiving story kids will learn about when the Tampa Bay History Center presents The Real First Thanksgiving, on Monday, November 22 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Kids can spend their day off from school unearthing a Timucuan kitchen mound like a true archaeologist and learning about the special meal shared between Spanish explorers and Florida’s first people. You’ll never look at Turkey Day the same way!

Presented by the Tampa Bay History Center and the Florida Public Archaeology Network, The First Real Thanksgiving is part of Discovery Days and open to children in 3rd through 5th grades. Registration is $30 per child for History Center members and $35 for non- members. Early drop-off and extended pick-up is available for an additional charge. Space is limited, pre-registration is required.

For more information contact the History Center’s Assistant Curator of Education, Jennifer Tyson, at (813) 675-8960 or jtyson@tampabayhistorycenter.org or visit http://www.tampabayhistorycenter.org/.
