Description

Overview:
This lesson enhances vocabulary acquisition and learning about how the Earth rotates on its axis and revolves around the Sun by reading the story, "Cottontail Shoots the Sun," a traditional tale shared by the Ute Indian Tribe of the Uintah and Ouray Reservation. It also helps students become familiar with cultural storytelling and its importance in Native cultures. Students will have a brief introduction to the Ute Indian Tribe of the Uintah and Ouray Reservation, its location, and partnership with the University of Utah. Then students will particpate in the group reading of the book and a STEM lesson learning about observable patterns in the sky.
