Final Projects for Native American Unit!

Our students and teachers have been working hard this trimester in Social Studies to learn as much as they can about the Wabanaki tribes, right here in our gorgeous state of Maine.

Each of the TLC schools took on the job of becoming an expert on one of the four Wabanaki tribes and then created a video to teach their TLC classmates what they learned about their tribe. Students focused on presenting information about their tribes geography in the state, as well as their food, clothing, and shelter.

The Monhegan School became experts on the Maliseet Tribe! They even made a life-sized wigwam replica which they filmed their presentation in. You do not want to miss it!

The Frenchboro School learned all about the Passamaquoddy Indians and give their presentation from a life-sized birch bark canoe!

The Ashley Bryan School taught us about food, clothing, AND shelter of the Penobscot tribe. Each student explains their presentations... so much work!

And here the Cliff Island school explains how the Passamaquoddy tribe made maple sugar! There are some major pyrotechnics in this presentation, so be prepared!

You can't help but be impressed with these students from their in-depth presentations and all the knowledge they shared with one another. Another fabulous round of TLC projects for the achieves!
