On Friday, September 8th, the 6th graders had the pleasure of welcoming Dallas Chief Eagle, through Dallas County Conservation, into our school. He and his daughter taught the students about Native American culture and hoop dancing. Students had a wonderful time learning about the Native American culture and participating in the fun activities that took place. This ties to our learning in Literacy class as well as our field trip to Kuehn Conservation Area.
Our field trip to Kuehn Conservation on Thursday, September 21 and Friday September, 22 went off without a hitch! Students learned more about the Native American culture as it is tied to our Literacy read aloud, Ghost Hawk. They learned how to build a fire (without using matches or a lighter), used their teamwork skills to engage in shelter building, and tagged monarchs to track migration to Mexico. What an amazing opportunity for our sixth graders!
