Native American Studies
Using the book More Than Moccasins: A Kid's Activity Guide To Traditional North American Indian Life as well as several other resources, we will learn about Native Americans from different regions of North America. We will do crafts, lapbooks/research projects, reading/storytelling, foods, etc. If there is enough interest, we will visit the Iroquois Indian Museum (about 1.25 hrs away) and The Mashantucket Pequot Museum and Research Center (about 2.5 hrs away). There will be a homework component to the class; each student will be assigned a region and will make a model Native American dwelling/diorama that is appropriate for their region to be showcased on display day. There may be optional classes on specific Fridays at my home to further our studies. More information will be posted if that can be arranged.
