Native American Museum

The big social studies unit in third grade is our Native American unit. The kiddos study 4 different tribes, then they each select a specific topic to research even more: they take notes, write a paper, and create an artifact. Then we open a museum! 

Last Friday was the big day! 
Each group created a tri-fold poster with their reports, a map showing where the tribe lived, and some facts about the tribe. The work they put into these was amazing. This is the point at the year where I realize how much they have grown! 
At each poster were their amazing artifacts, too. The detail and work they put into these blew me away.
There were examples of the various houses, toys children played with, clothing, examples of the food, weapons, and ceremonial pieces.

Parents and other classes came to see all their hard work. The second graders were really excited to learn all about this next year!
It was a great way to wrap up our unit and showcase all the hard work the kiddos did!

Onward to the end of the year now!!

And! Come link up and join the Good.Random.Fun. each Monday, right here!

So much fun to see the kids get into a project with enthusiasm. My grandson is doing his solar project presentation today.
