Learning About the Plains Indians
I'm a little (or a lot) behind on blogging, but I wanted to share with you some of the things we did when Jack was learning about the Plains Indians. I found these little tepee kits at the Rainbow Resource booth at last year's homeschool convention, so we pulled them out and put them together. I had to bring out the hot glue gun, but for just a couple of bucks a piece, I'm not complaining.
He read some from the old textbook we have and then used these books. I got Let's Look Inside a Tepee at the Alamo gift shop on our honeymoon. Yes, I'm the kind of person who does things like that. The other two I have had since back in my classroom days.
If you haven't subscribed to the Homeschool Share Blog, you really need to! Subscribers get the huge type-it-in template pack so you can make your own lapbooking pieces. I used the templates to make these pieces to go along with the reading he was assigned.
I also pulled the buffalo section from the History Pockets book we already had.
Inside the booklet...
After this we moved on to the Five Civilized Tribes--and even took a field trip, so I hope to get that posted soon!
