The kids were then taken back in time as we turned into Native Americans. We explored their housing, crafts and way of life. The visited a teepee, hogan, and longhouse. They made wampum, bowls and pottery, and wrote symbols on "buckskin." One kiddo told me, "Mrs. Weishaar, you make the best surprises!" Warm my heart! Take a look:
|Eating wampum in the longhouse|
|Miss A and I on a fishing trip|
|Eating out of clay pots in the hogan|
|"I can only catch three fish because I only have three worms."|
We finished up our day reading When a Storm Comes Up. We learned three new fancy words, whirl, warn, and property.
