The students' attention is captured right away as the presenter unpacks replicas of artifacts used by the Powhatan Indians nearly 400 years ago. It is nearly impossible to keep students in their seats when they see the bow and arrow, stone tools, animal skins, and the many other items brought into the classroom.
Students are encouraged to identify the various natural resources used by Native American men, women, and children to make their tools and clothing. They will also engage in discussion about Pocahontas and the myths and facts associated with her. The students will experience a thrilling moment when they view an image of what Pocahontas actually looked like, as compared to what they've seen in movies.
I loved the artifacts in the Pocahontas and Powhatan Indian program.
