This fact will help my group during our presentation by us teaching the children aboutthe different types of animals that were hunted. Our section of the gallery has many tools for hunting that the Early People used tocatch their food. It will be fun and interesting to ask the students what kinds of animals theythink people hunted back then and how they hunted them. We will also be able to talk about how we know this through Archaeologists finding the evidence. “More than 13,000 years ago, some people traveling on foot from hilly country to the south and west came into North Dakota and prepared to hunt on the grass-covered plains west of the Little Missouri River” (Marchello,2018, pg. 8). This fact is very interesting to me because I did not realize how long ago people came to North Dakota. They also were thought to havecome over from Asia into Alaska and then travel to North Dakota by foot, which amazes me the amount of hard word and dedication that would have taken. This will help us teachthe children about the hard work that is apart of their history and how it is important to know about the people who came to discover North Dakota. “Archaeologists have led the process of discovery and interpretation of cultures of the ancient past” (Marchello, 2018, pg. 8). This quote can help children see the importance and excitement that comes with archaeology. We can show them around the gallery and all of the things that archaeologists have found and preserved for people to see. It would be fun to do an activity with a class one day that involved archaeology and have them dig up things from the past or things that belong to them. They can then see the importance of history and how one day they will be known in the history books and an archaeologist may dig up their belongings. 33
EDU 367 JOURNALMarch 20, 2019Early People Research“These prehistoric people were probably big-game hunters who were following herds of large animals, such as mastodons, woolly mammoths, and giant bison” (Herman, Johnson, 2006).The resource that I used to find more information on the Early People of North Dakota was the text book that is used for fourth grade social studies. This resource was helpful because it gave more information on what we will be talking about during our gallery walk with the students on April, 16th. This quote stood out to me because I thought it was interesting the way they hunted. Our gallery also has a lot of information on the hunting strategies and tools for the Early People of North Dakota so this fact will be helpful when talking with the students. “Glaciologists (glay-see-ol-a-jists) (scientists who study glaciers) believe that from about 25,000 years ago to about 10,000 years ago, the Bering Strait was a land bridge that may have been 1,000 miles wide. Animals and people could have easily made their way fromAsia to North America across this wide strip of land” (Herman, Johnson, 2006).
