Indigenous Peoples’ History Unit Study
We are honored and thrilled that you’ve chosen us to come alongside your family as you pursue a wonder-filled education for your children! For the next six weeks, you and your children will get an authentic look at the history of Native Americans and colonial settlers, while studying the rich culture of this land’s first people and addressing some misconceptions. This may cause your child to have some wonders along the way! Champion them to pursue those wonders… remember, YOU are their greatest cheerleader!
This unit’s Invitations to Play and Create have been specially designed to spark creativity, encourage play, and develop a love of learning within your child. To us, that’s just as important as core academics. We’ve interwoven rich and diverse literature every week that will teach your family more about Native culture. Along with weekly nature journaling activities and composer studies, as well as an intentionally crafted empathy project, these six weeks will help your child have a well-rounded view on Native American and Colonial history.
Be encouraged, moms and dads! Your child is a problem solver, community-minded, a courageous learner, filled with wonder, and capable of much… and so are YOU! We are here to help you be their best teacher. We’re rooting for you!
