CA History - Culture Studies: Miwok and Ohlone

Our previous "Country Day" morphed this year into "Culture Studies" with fun around learning about different cultures together, doing an activity, and then sharing food and community with new and old friends. This was an awesome first day and the kids got to make tule boats, just perfectly doll-house sized, imagining how difficult and yet possible it would be to make actual tule boats, human sized, for fishing from the then-marshy bay waters. Based on our previous Miwok and Ohlone studies, the kids even offered tidbits of information to our teacher that she hadn't known - things I was impressed that they remembered.
