4th grade NATIVE AMERICAN STUDIES!

October 2, 2014 | Posted in Uncategorized

CAM00001  CAM00005 CAM00004What 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.
