Sacajawea

Sacajawea and her son, Pompey


Story cube with the trail Lewis and Clark took with Sacajawea.

A beginning, middle, and end diorama.

Lewis and Clark met an indian chief with the most beautiful fur coat they had ever seen! They offered everything they had to trade for the fur coat, but the chief only wanted the blue beaded belt Sacajawea was wearing. Blue beads were very valuable and the chief would only trade the coat for the belt. So Sacajawea gave the belt with no complaint and the trade was made.

Goose decided to make Sacajawea's blue beaded belt out of sculpey and paint. It turned out great, don't you think? She has been wearing it out and about. Goose also did a venn diagram comparing herself to Sacajawea, a feelings report on how Sacajawea felt in the beginning, middle and end of the book with a short description and drawing. Unfortunately, I turned these in to her teacher yesterday so I can't post them. Goose really enjoyed reading and learning about Sacajawea and Lewis and Clark. I know she is quite impressed with Sacajawea's inner strength and survival skills. I know I certainly I am!

  1. Sacajawea is really amazing! We learned all about her when we did a unit on Lewis and Clark.
    Goose's belt turned out fabulous! I'm sure it would be a good trade for a fur coat:)

  2. Ok, I'm bringing my girls to you for history lessons! :)

    The flowers in alcohol or witch hazel will make a much better flower water. I hope she likes it.

    Lisa :)
