W is for Wampanoag

We have been learning about the Wampanoags and the First Thanksgiving. In kindergarten we are heavy on the Native Americans and light on the Pilgrims since they are studied in more depth in older grades. I have a great book, The Wampanoags and The First Thanksgiving by Everyday Learning Corporation. It shows in detail the lives of the tribe in easy to understand kindergarten language. The pictures are clear and very detailed. I am lucky to have this resource since so many of the books about the topics I teach in Core Knowledge are way above my grade levels understanding. I asked my students to create their own scene between the Wampanoags and the Pilgrims.
