    Native Americans

    Community Reads

    During the month of April, Third Grade students are learning about the culture and historical events of several Native American cultures. Students read how Native Americans migrated through the continents, changing their way of life as they moved from one place to another. Students learn how homes were built, how food was gathered, the different games played by their children, and how dogs were trained to pull sleds for various reasons.

    • Before School - Your child is learning about indigenous Native Americans. Ask your child to describe details about how people adapted to the environment of the region in which they settled and how that adaptation shaped their cultural identity.

     

    • After School - This month, your child is studying the daily life of Native American children long ago. Ask your child to explain a day in the life of a Native American child.

     

    • Dinnertime - Students are discovering different ways Native Americans historically prepared for their daily meals. Discuss with your child the different ways Native Americans gathered food for their meals and compare it to the way we get food today.

     

    • Bedtime - Long ago, Native Americans built their homes from mammoth skin, bones, branches, and other resources from the earth. Ask your child to compare and contrast how Native Americans once built their homes to the way we build homes today.
