The Five Civilized Tribes

 After we learned about the Plains Indians, we moved on to the Five Civilized Tribes.

 We used this book along with some information from The Big Oklahoma Reproducible Activity Book.

 We also took a field trip to the Five Civilized Tribes Museum in Muskogee.

There is only one room in the museum where you can take pictures, so I don't have many to share!  It was a nice little museum, though, and it had a terrific gift shop with some books I'll share soon!
You may remember this picture from about two and a half years ago when we took a trip to the Cherokee Heritage Center.
 This was an interesting trip because we have a relative who went to the Cherokee Female Seminary and later taught there.

 This picture is from the Adams Corner area that shows life for the Cherokees before statehood, and there is also a Cherokee village.  If you have to pick one field trip for the Five Civilized Tribes, this definitely gives you the most for your money!
