Wyoming Indians, Unit II.
Robinson, Terry
This unit on Wyoming Indians provides concepts, activities, Indian stories, and resources for elementary school students. Indian values and contributions are summarized. Concepts include the incorrectness of the term "Indian," the Indians' democratic society and sophisticated culture, historical events, and conflicts with whites over the land. Activities involve students in preparing pictorial history charts, reading Indian legends, writing stories and poems from the Indian point of view, making costumes, and reporting on famous Wyoming Indians. Reproducible vocabulary worksheets, puzzles, Indian symbols, and instructions for making a full-size tipi, gourd rattle, canoe, beadwork, travois, jerky, and pemican are provided. Indian stories relate creation myths and the origin of fire. Names and addresses of resource persons, films, books, free or inexpensive materials, and reproducible maps are also included. (KC)
