My students, 4th graders in South Baltimore, are excited, inquisitive, and thoughtful young citizens of our city. These students are living in an impoverished area of Baltimore City, and therefore do not have as many opportunities to explore our state as other children may.
Our team wants to give our thoughtful 4th graders an opportunity to engage in Native American experiences when they would not normally be able to do so.
These students love to go on field trips and apply their learning beyond the classroom. They ask questions, engage in thoughtful discussions, and jump at every opportunity to learn about the world around them.
4th graders in the state of Maryland are required to learn about other cultures and how those cultures shaped our state and our country.
Students will engage in many different Native American activities, ranging from all different types of tribes.
Students will learn about the importance of legends, the different tools each tribe used, the games that were played, and the different types of dwellings that tribes lived in.
This is an interactive field trip, full of hands on activities to help students solidify their understanding of how important Native American cultures are to the development of our state and country.
