CORE CONNECTIONS for Extended Learning…
LANGUAGE ARTS: Look at the map and the information from the Columbian Zoo in Lafayette, IN. Pretend that you are a tour guide and tell a classmate about an animal you think would be the most interesting. Draw a picture and include descriptive details!
SOCIAL STUDIES: Tecumseh was a great Shawnee chief who united many tribes in an attempt to hold onto the land when white settlers began to move in. The U.S. government eventually forced the Shawnee and other tribes into new areas. Try to think of some ways that the settlers and the Indians could have worked together to make the most of the land and its resources.
SCIENCE: Historic Prophetstown is also a working farm that offers a wide range of products in addition to its Agritourism attractions. Learn more about the Belgian Draft Horses and identify the ways that horse farming is efficient as well as green!
MATHEMATICS: Maps usually have a scale that shows distance among places. Check out the map of Tippecanoe County. Look at the scale in the LOWER RIGHT CORNER of the map. (1 inch = 0.5 miles) Estimate the distance of the Wabash River from the north end of the Lafayette Municipal Golf Course to the south end of Digby Park
