Early last week, we started our American history study by examining early migration theories to the Americas. We also made connections to Native American creation stories we read at the beginning of the year as many tribes believed they were created and originated on the lands they inhabited.
Today, we will examine five pre-Columbian cultural regions that flourished during the 1400s and conduct research and replicate artifacts that represent the tribes. Lauren's class is doing the same, but with five other regions. In two weeks, we will create museum exhibits and an accompanying audio tour and visit each others classrooms.
In art, we decorated and glazed the pieces we formed two weeks ago.
