Native American Studies Resources
Youngest dd and I have s-l-o-w-l-y been doing a dual study of biomes and Native American tribes. Yes, I meant to blog it along the way and have been keeping some of the resources/activities to post. First we study a biome (deserts, for example) and then we study some of the major tribes that lived in that biome originally.
I thought I'd better post these books that we've been using for several biomes/tribes before I return them to the library and forget all about them! The latent perfectionist in me doesn't want to post this until it's "nice and tidy" or at least better organized, but the realist wants to just share them now :).
Someone put a hold on them at the library so I have to return them (after having them since last school year - yes, I'm spoiled with my library system!). If I were at the beginning of our studies I would actually buy these books. However, we should manage to finish with them before the deadline since we're at the tail end. I don't buy many books anymore so that tells you that we've actually used them throughout :). I saw several used copies as I was posting this.
Children of Native America Today
Spider Spins a Story: Fourteen Legends from Native America
Everyday Life of the Native Americans (Uncovering History)
Native American Crafts of California, the Great Basin, and the Southwest
We are getting ready to use this one:
Native American Crafts of the Northwest Coast, the Arctic, and the Subarctic
Another in that series (our library didn't have it during those studies so I haven't seen it in person): Native American Crafts of the Northeast and Southeast (Native American Crafts)
