The second grade class learned how to create a Google Slide and researched the Nez Perce and the Sioux indigenous tribes. Brynn Buerkle, Kellan Knuths and Emory Rieger researched the Nez Perce tribe. Located in Washington, Idaho, Oregon, and on the western border of Montana, the Nez Perce were forced to move west into Montana because of settlers in the west who wanted more hunting land. They wear long fringed shirts, leggings buckskin dresses and robes; the men of the tribe fished for salmon, told stories to the young, and trained Appaloosa horses. Meanwhile, the women taught their daughters the art of traditional cooking, weaving, and basketry. For part of the year the Nez Perce lived in longhouses called kuhetini. Weston Robertus, Alan Wiedmer, and Mason Lai researched the Sioux, this indigenous tribe lived in Minnesota and Wisconsin where they followed the bison. Children in the Sioux tribe care for the horse and watched after their smaller family members. The women of the Sioux people owned all family belongings, taught their daughters to cook, tan hides for clothing, and assemble tepees. The Second Grade Class enjoyed learning about different indigenous cultures. The class gained many new skills through Google Slides as well. For example, they learned how to insert images, color a background, create bigger fonts, and insert shapes. To showcase their knowledge on their tribe the Second Graders presented their projects to each other through a Google Meet. The students enjoyed acquiring new knowledge about Google Slides and indigenous people!
