Field Trip to the Grove

Jump to Comments

Today we were able to go back in time with our tour guides Running Deer and Little Fox and experience what daily life was like for Native Americans 200 years ago. You practiced some of the chores, made crafts for decoration, and even learned some of the prayers and songs! It was fascinating to learn how the Native Americans would adapt to their environment to make various materials and tools that would assist them in having food and shelter. The Potawatomi tribe used bark and animal hide to make their longhouses. They also used animal bones for their weapons, which would help them hunt for food. 

What did you enjoy the most about the field trip? Are there certain activities and chores that you found to be difficult to practice on a daily basis? Was there any new information you learned about that surprised you? Reflect about your field trip experience below.
