Sign of the Beaver is an exciting book about a settler 12 year old boy and the tense and awkward friendship with a Native American boy. Set in Maine in 1768, Matt, left alone on the homestead for months, runs into trouble. We will learn about the state of Maine, Native American nations, and discuss stereotypes. We will have projects in survivor skills, first aid skills, make a poultice, and create our own Sign of the Beaver.
The kids will read at home approximately 4-6 chapters each class. We'll spend our time in class with projects and activities to help us understand this fabulous book better, and to enjoy learning what Matt had to learn on the homestead!
