US Geography

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).


This is a super basic US patriotism class, based in part on the US citizenship test.

Day one: US Flag & other symbols. What does the flag look like? What do the stripes mean? What do the stars mean? What are the 50 states?  US Moto: E Pluribus Unum "one from many", US symbols: Bald Eagle, Bison, US Seal. Make a flag to take home. Listen to "The Pledge of Allegiance" "The Star-Spangled Banner" and "You're a grand Ol' Flag" "The Stars and Stripes Forever"
