Exploring Native American Tribes

Second grade students have been learning about Native American tribes and their regions. Using their research skills, they explored Epic! books and textbooks, took notes and transferred their notes into a poster board to give an oral presentation. The students dove deep into each region and recreated some of the tools and art the Native Americans made. As a class, they read “Thanksgiving on Thursday” and took part in a book study where they discovered even more about how the Native Americans helped the Pilgrims and about the very first Thanksgiving. They wrapped up this unit of study with a “feast” where they sat at a long table, shared a sweet treat and talked about things they are grateful for.
