The Little House on the Konza Prairie
March 4th, 1864
Today grandpappy told us a story about the Kanza Tribe, or best known as the KAW Indians. Did you know that it was normal to have two to three families living in a large dome-shaped earth lodge. There would be several of these lodges group together in villages. Each village had at least one chief that would look over the village. They were chosen to be chief due to their wisdom and bravery.
To kick off your summer break on June 1st your mom and dad are treating you and 5 of your friends to a day at Worlds of Fun. Your mom is really busy helping out at the Southwest Field day and has asked you to figure out how much it will cost for the tickets for everyone to go. As a special treat your mom said you can figure the Fast Lane price. She reminds you that you will need a ticket for both of your parents, your little brother, older brother, and your baby sister.
You forgot to set your alarm last night and you over slept. You rush to school running pass the city part. You made a sharp turn at the Springfield lake just as you saw the swans take flight. You arrive at the school to find your class has already left for the field trip. Because you are still a little groggy you can't remember where they were going.
Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I will learn.
