Mrs. Lloyd’s fifth graders at Brownstown wrapped up a unit on Native Americans by displaying their group projects. Each group made a poster board with information about their tribe, including where the tribes lived, what they wore, weapons used, and more.
In addition to the poster board, the students made a model of their assigned Native American tribe’s homes which, Mrs. Lloyd noted, was the students favorite part.
They displayed their projects in a “Native American Museum” in their classroom on Oct. 12.
The tribes the students researched included: Comanche, Pawnee, Eskimos, Nez Perce Tribe, Cherokee, Wampanoag, Shoshone, Pueblo, and Iroquois.
Students also made Native American names for themselves and displayed them along with their projects.
