What an exciting week we have had! 4th graders are deep into their Washington State History studies! We first researched how Native American names were chosen. We then chose a name for each of us and wrote legends about how those names came to be. We then celebrated those names with a ceremony that included the reading of the legends, some traditional Native American foods, and a fun barter game! Ask a fourth grader to teach it to you, it is a lot of fun! Building a tribal scene comes next, as does a visit from a local tribal member.
