Program: Early California Indian Life

Topic(s)
Early California Indians/Ohlone
Description
We can learn so much from the way Native Americans interacted with the environment. While they depended entirely on the resources of their environment, they also believed they must use these resources respectfully such that it would be equally available to their descendants seven generations later.

Students will explore how the Early California Indians lived gently on the planet while they were hunting, gathering food like acorns, making tools, twisting grasses for everything from twine to boats, and even playing games.

The program is available for grades 3 and up. It directly aligns with many of the history standards in 3rd and 4th grade.
