Fourth Grade Totems

Submitted by susan.bird on Mon, 11/19/2018 - 08:27

During this week of celebration 4th graders continue to learn more about the Native Americans. We spent some time with GAINS specialist, Christine Palmer, learning about totem poles in the Pacific Northwest. Students spent time researching some of the sacred and symbolic carvings found on these wooden masterpieces. Based on their research they then chose and created their own totem pole to represented their family.

Native American Studies

Submitted by susan.bird on Fri, 11/16/2018 - 08:06

Monday Brookside 4th graders had the privilege of a visit from Mrs. Begay and Mrs. Billie with the Title VI Program. We learned how to communicate/sing with our hands and found out that not only democracy, but many of the words and foods we use have a Native American influence. Students loved it and we are ready to start studying Utah's Native American tribes. Thanks for sharing your heritage with us!

We welcomed some Title VI and Cultural Envoy dancers to our school yesterday. They performed several dances from many different Native American tribes. Students were mesmerized by their costumes, music, and dances. All who attended gained a greater appreciate for the rich heritage of the Native American people. One of the highlights of the performance was watching Brookside Tiger, Ailee K. perform the butterfly dance. Thank you Ailee and all those who shared their talents with us!
