2nd Grade Native American Feast
Second grade students have been studying how Native Americans used the resources around them to survive. Their studies have included reading, storytelling, book reports in diorama form, art, music, computer, hands-on projects, a field trip to The History Center, and preparing food for a Native American feast, which took place today. For their feast, they shucked corn, snapped beans, baked pies, and prepared Indian Fry Bread and a rice dish. They also prepared Native American clothing for the feast and Pow Wow, where they danced and sang. Their pinch pots and dioramas showing the environment of tribes throughout North America were displayed. A lot of learning fun took place for students, parents, and teachers!
