It was another great day at Museum School. We went to
the Blackfoot exhibit and made miniature tipis. After checking out the
models displayed there. We worked with an author, Roberta Reese, who
shared a character and story with us. She helped us to think of ways
(using our senses) to make sure our stories were more vivid and interesting.
We created a character and wrote a scene. Tomorrow we will have some time
to finish our stories and share them.
We visited the Blackfoot area again in the afternoon to find
some answers to specific questions which made us examine how the traditions of
the Blackfoot have changed.

tongue was used for combs when dried. The horns were turned into
spoons and powder horns. The skin was made into tipis. The

used for tools." By Chris

He was in his PJs waiting for his tuxedo to be all clean. He was an
hour late for the dance. His girlfriend was gone by the time Jim got
to the dance. He was made at the washing machine because it took an
hour to clean his tuxedo. He went home and went to bed. The
next morning he had waffles." By Adam

She had two friends their names are Jimmy and Kim. They meet each
other at an ice-cream shop and then they went skiing. But Kim got
lost. Jimmy looked everywhere. ...Jimmy said what if she got
kidnapped by aliens? Then Jimmy said you are a moron. and
Jimmy said Thank you. Jimmy said she is probably a spy and a
magician. Well it could be true. Ya. And I'm the king of
England, Jimmy said..." By Tyler

He's the boy, youngest in the family. He's a hunter with the

|"My character is named Nicole. She is ten years
old. She has blond hair. Her eyes are blue. She doesn't
like wearing dresses. She loves wearing jeans and long sleeves.
She is medium built. She likes wearing bows in her hair. She
has a mom, a dad, two brothers, an a baby sister. She likes to swim
and dance. She wants to be a good dancer and a swimmer in the
future. Her favourite colour is blue because it is the colour of her
mom's eyes. Her favourite food is French toast because it is sweet."
||"A story robe is a piece of skin with pictures on it that
represent a story. The buffalo were very helpful to the Blackfoot.
They provided lots of food for the Blackfoot. Their hides were used
to build tipis. In the past, the Blackfoot people ate buffalo.
Now they eat food like us. They used to live in tipis, now they live
in cabins." By Connor
