Today was fascinating! We had a special guest from the Ute Indian Museum of Montrose teach us all about how the Ute's (and other Native American tribes) used every last part of the buffalo in their daily lives. Did you know the brains were used to help soften hides to make blankets and clothing? Did you know the hooves were boiled to make glue?

Today we celebrated veterans. We took some time to learn about the history of Veteran's Day in America. We learned about the different branches of the military and the wars that have been fought since WWI. We also took time to dig into some interesting articles about veterans who celebrate their commitment to our country in different ways. Check them out below!
