The saying goes that "Rome wasn't built in a day", but the 3rd Graders decided to give it a try anyway! To wrap up a unit about ancient Roman civilization, students recreated famous architecture! They explained why the structure was important to ancient Romans, listed specific elements of the architecture that kept it from becoming ruins, and then sketched a plan. Their models are made from packing peanuts and represent the Colosseum, Pantheon, and an aqueduct!

DHS global studies and US history classes are learning about the Flight of 1877 when the Nez Perce were driven from their homeland of the Wallowa Mountains in Oregon. Led by Chief Joseph, 800 Nez Perce sought to find a new home. Students were visited by Celeste Whitewolf who shares a common ancestor with Chief Joseph. Ms. Whitewolf shared the story of her people and their legacy. Her presentation was not only informative, but very entertaining and we thank her for visiting Dufur High School!

The 3rd Grade has been learning Tribal History/Shared History lessons! They recently learned about harvesting berries, how traditional foods are special to families, and how partnering with others is not only fun but helps make jobs easier. They practiced reading a recipe for Kalapuya Berry Tarts and figured out how to multiply in order to make enough for the whole class. When that was done, High School students in the Early Childhood Education class led groups of 3rd Graders in making these delicious tarts! It was a wonderful experience and the treats turned out great! (The lessons and recipe were generously shared by the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde.)
