Third Graders Explore Native Americans

The students in third grade have been learning about Native Americans in many ways.  They used the textbook and watched short documentary videos to complete learning activities about the Navajo, Yurok, Cherokee, and Haudenosaunee tribes.

They did sand paintings to reflect Navajo art.

They wrote short stories on “skins” using only pictures. After the stories were written, they were recorded on the Seesaw App and are able to be shared over and over again in class.

Skin Story

This is the story: There was good weather at Indian camp.  The campfire was good. A bear came to Indian camp. Help!  Now there is peace.  Have a good night!

Currently, each student has a tribe assigned to them and they are doing research and taking notes in the computer lab in order to use Discovery Education’s Boardbuilder to share their information. They are researching location, crafts, clothing, housing, food and the daily life of children in the tribes.  The final product will include a picture that correlates to the research and will be uploaded in the class Seesaw account.
