Pocahontas & the Powhatan Indians – Skype in the Classroom

Posted by thecolou on 13 februari 2015 in Uncategorized |

Another great English lesson! We have met the crew from Virginia Historical Society and they told us about Pocahontas and the Powhatan Indians. We learned a lot! Did you know that Pocahontas didn’t look like she does in the movie? We saw a portrait of her and it was not at all the same!

We also learned that a reservation is like a ”society within the society”. Some of the reservations have their own laws and their own governments, but they can still vote for the President.

We recorded this lesson and below you can watch a part of it. If you want to participate in a Skype lesson just join: Skype in the classroom

See you soon/
