Native Americans of Michigan


The websites below are what the kids have been using to research a tribe native to Michigan. They are making posters and will present their findings to their classmates.

Our Native American Unit in Social Studies is exciting for the kids. We had a wonderful experience with Mr. Ghareeb on October 23rd. To tie in with our unit the kids learned all about the Native American tribes of Michigan. Here are a few pictures of the artifacts Mr. Ghareeb shows the kids. He lets them touch and try on things as well, even actual animal skins and furs!! They had a blast.
