Grandma has things on the native Americans for you and a book to read. Grandma hopes she get some things for you from Faith Alive tonight and cover the Calendar History. First link to Natives1; then to Natives 2; Link Native 3; Link Native 4; Link Native 5; Link Native 6; Link Native 7; Link Native 8; and Link Native 9. Maybe you can find more to watch and learn by.
One Book to read is called The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses by Paul Gobel (Bradbury Press, 1978, 32 pp.)
As Grandma's Book (6) says, "A Native American girl who loves horses is lost among them during a terrible storm. The leader of the horses then invites the girl to live with them. When, in the end, the girl is one with the horses, it is clear that this lovely story is meant to underscore the Native American people's affinity with and awe of nature.

A Natural Mood
Have children raise their hands to indicate how many of them knew (before reading the book) that Native Americans feel close to nature? Ask the children ...to explain how they learned this information. Invite the children to comb through the book's illustrations to discover how many pictorial references to nature appear in the pages of the book (i.e., look for plants, animals and other natural elements pictured in the book.) List these on a chart pad. Have the children discuss why the author/illustrator would include elements in his pictures that he doesn't directly discuss in the book.
It is possible that you and your children will hear or see the term "Indian" used at times and other times "Native American". Research and find out why this is and where they originated from. These are considered labels and it is good to talk about them and see how the children feel about it and if anything can be different.
Grandma will have more information tomorrow, for it did not work tonight for Grandma to cover all she wanted to.
