Fifth grade students recently finished the historical fiction book “The Sign of the Beaver” about a 12-year-old boy befriended by Native American Indians in Maine in 1768.  Yesterday, students made Native American headbands, painted their faces, and enjoyed a “traditional” feast. During reading class, students have been discussing lessons from the book including how the Penobscot Indians were a peaceful and thankful tribe who let nothing go to waste.  Over the next two days they will be watching the movie based on the book, and will compare and contrast the similarities and differences. Below are some pictures from today’s celebration:
