Joseph Bruchac's lyrical retellings set the stage for Michael Caduto's abundance of related activities. Beginning with Native American stories, this invaluable and time-honored resource provides readers with an abundance of hands-on activities that will inspire children to understand and appreciate Native American cultures and the Earth. Connects to social studies, science, environmental studies and other content areas.
Uses a holistic approach suitable for all ages. Provides field-tested activities. Includes charts, illustrations and graphs to enhance the projects and concepts. When the stories and activities in this book and its companion teacher's guide are followed carefully as children progress from kindergarten through the primary grades, roughly ages five through twelve years, they provide a complete program of study in the important concepts and topics of ecology and natural history. As the stories unfold and you help the children to bring the activities to life, a holistic, interdisciplinary approach to teaching about the Earth and Native American cultures begins.
These stories and activities weave together lessons both directly and through metaphors and have been enjoyed by families as well as in camp settings, nature centers, environmental education programs, public and private schools, library story hours, and in both rural and urban settings.

The story is a framework around which to spin entertainment and lesson-teaching. This book contains a simplified version of several North American stories from different regions. It is noticeable how different many are from the PNW stories I've encountered in the past.
