- What was the Haida culture like in the past, and what is it like now?
- What is a Potlatch?
On Friday, we started learning about the Peoples of the Northwest; specificially, one group of Alaskan Natives known as the Haida people. Below, I will provide links to pages that will give you more information. From the links titled: Potlatch, Haida Culture 1, and Haida Culture 2, make up at least three questions for your fellow classmates. Next week, your classmates will be given copies of the same information to read and they will be asked to answer your questions. For those of you that complete this, you will be allowed to continue working on your totem poles!

More on the Tribal Canoe Journey - this is the Tribal Canoe Journey I was telling you about. This is an annual event and was revived back in the 1990's. This particular journey was in 2007; the canoes gathered on the shore at Lummi. I was standing on the beach cheering, along with a fellow student of yours: Michael!

PLEASE SAVE YOUR CEREAL BOXES!
Next week, students will be assigned a "Cereal Box Book Report!" (check the "Documents" link for a letter to families called: "Cereal Box Book Report." Students will select a book to read and fill out templates that display literary elements; the templates will be glued onto the box. They will also decorate the box in a way that describes the book. This report will end with your student presenting a cereal/book "commercial" to the class!
