Activity 2 – ELA Reading and Writing

So how did we get from a wigwam to a refrigerator? Let’s tie in Native American history with Sam’s life in the twenty-first century. Here is the introduction for Sam and his account:

This is Sam. He’s also Ojibwe but he’s not from a long time ago. He’s 16 years old. He lives on a reservation in the northern United States. You’ve probably heard of it. He doesn’t live in a wigwam. He lives in a white house with a grey roof. That’s the refrigerator in his house. The magnets have been there ever since he was in second grade.

Read the passage about Sam.

Writing Prompt

Read about Sam and write a story about him. What do you think happened to him in second grade? Why does everyone except for his cousin, Angie, think he’s not smart? Do you think he and Angie can really walk to Maine?

NOTE: Sam is a character from Forgotten Trail which teaches fractions, basic statistics, and Ojibwe history.
