Horses of the Plains

Page history last edited by PBworks 14 years, 8 months ago


Use a Cause and Effect Diagram to show what happened when the Native Americans started using horses to hunt buffalo.  Use the information in the diagram to summarize the book.


Think and Compare

1. Reread page 5.  Why did Native Americans start using horses when they hunted?  How did horses make hunting easier?


2.  Native Americans decorated their horses with special symbols.  How would you decorate your horse?  What would your symbols mean?


3.  Why is it important to protect buffalo so that they do not become extinct?  Explain your answer.


Write a Travel Journal

Suppose you are traveling across the Great Plains during the 1800's.  What would you see?  How would you get food?  Write a journal entry describing a day in your journey.
