Famous British People from the Past

My favourite British person from the past is David Livingstone. He was a missionary,a doctor, an explorer and a famous discoverer.

This is his life timeline:

-David Livingstone was born in 1813 in Scotland.
-When he was a child, he studied in a school after working in a cotton mill* during 14 hours.

The story of the Pilgrims

Thanksgiving Day is the fourth Thursday in November, but many Americans take a day of vacation on the following Friday to make a four-day weekend, during which they may travel long distances to visit family and friends.

O Día de Acción de Gracias celébrase en Estados Unidos o 4º xoves de Novembro, pero moitos amaricanos toman o seguinte venres festivo para facer un fin de semana de catro días e, deste modo, poder recorrer longas distancias para visitar a familiares e amigo.

Do you Know why we have Thanksgiving Day? We celebrate Thanksgiving Day because of Pilgrims and Native Americans.

Here you have a presentation  to learn more about this celebration.

And here you have the story of Pilgrims adapted for the youngest.
