Tribal Legacies of Pathfinding (Fifth-Grade Version)


On May 7, 2018, Dr. Carmelita Lamb of the University of Mary worked with teachers in training at Turtle Mountain Community College in North Dakota.  They prepared a one-day workshop for fifth graders.  The fuller lesson plan will be forthcoming.
