Thank you, thank you, thank you for all the love you showed the Beta teachers on Wednesday! It felt so wonderful to be treated to a delicious meal, and showered with cards and hand crafted flowers from the kiddos! We felt very special!
This week we have begun our focus on the the Native Americans- more specifically the Plains Indians because these tribes are the ones the pioneers would have encountered on their travels along the Oregon Trail.
We began by locating the tribes on the map and labeling a few.
Do you remember where the Plains tribes were found??
Somewhere in the United States, right? Were they located in the East? The West? In the Central US? What do you think? Look at Noah’s map if you need a clue!
We have also done a bit of reading and learned some interesting facts about these tribes and jotted them down in our Travel Journals.
Did you know these Indians were nomads?? Do you remember what this means??
And they hunted a certain kind of animal. Do you remember which one? What parts did they use?
Why did they live in Teepees?
