This week we learned we learned about the first people in Maine- the Paleo Indians, the Red Paint People and the Oyster People. The Paleo Indians were nomadic people meaning they never stayed in one place long. The Red Paint People got their name from burring their dead with red clay giving the body a red color. The Oyster People ate lots of oysters. People found this out by discovering piles of shell middens. That is what I learned about the first people of Maine. LB

On Thursday November 6th we will be traveling to the Maine State Museum. We will be leaving school promptly at 8:45 and returning by 2:30. Students are asked to bring a bag lunch (no glass) and snack.
The Maine State Museum trip is a wonderful opportunity for students to see many of the topic areas we have studied and will be studying in the upcoming year. (Mammals of Maine, the first people of Maine, product and resources of Maine, etc.)
If you would like to join us please email me. We are excited about all the artifacts and demonstrations we will be seeing at the MSM.
