Whitman Mission Teacher's Guide.
National Park Service (Dept. of Interior), Washington, DC.
Marcus and Narcissa Whitman, from a settled area of upstate New York, arrived in Old Oregon Country (what is now eastern Washington) in 1836 to make a new home for themselves and their companions. This was also the land of the Cayuse Indians. This teacher's guide to the Whitman Mission Museum (Washington) is designed to develop an understanding of the two strong, vibrant cultures that met and eventually clashed at the Whitman Mission. The guide presents general information and is divided into the following sections: (1) "Cayuse Indians"; (2) "Whitmans and the Pioneers"; (3) "Science Activities"; (4) "Art Activities"; (5) "Math Activities"; (6) "Map Activities"; (7) "Writing/Spelling"; (8) "Physical Education Activities"; (9) "Social Studies"; and (10) "Appendix." The appendix includes recipes, books, and films that are available to school groups. (BT)
