FC: The Ancient Americans By Jordan H.,Gavin F.,Jake T.,And Harrison Strutz

1: The Paleo-Indians

2: The Paleo-Indians migrated on the Beringia land bridge because all of the herds of the animals they hunted were migrating also. They crossed from 13,000 to 7,500 B.C.E. After that the ice melted and formed the Bering Strait. We can't cross this land bridge anymore because temperatures increased and the ice melted.

3: They hunted musk ox,caribou, glyptidontidae, mammoth,bison, saber-tooth cat,and deer. | The Paleo-Indians used antler, wood, bone,and stone weapons.

4: The Paleo-Indians used stone and wooden knives for tools. They used them for skinning animals for clothes. They lived in pinion juniper and brush grass shelters.

5: The Paleo Indians migrated from Asia because the flocks of animals were moving. All we know of the Paleo Indians is from archaeologists. Special scientists that find artifacts from the past.

6: Adena mound builders! By Jake Thompson

7: They hunted deer, elk, black bear, woodchuck, beaver, porcupine, turkey, trumpeter swan, ruffed grouse. They gathered several edible seed grasses and nuts to eat.

8: Autumn leaves are falling

9: "Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower." - Albert Camus

10: Hopewell Indians 200 B.c to 500 A.D. Gavin Falk

11: Some of the animals the Hopewell Indians hunted were Caribou, Bison, Sabertooth cats, and mammoths. The Hopewell planted many crops but one of the biggest crops they planted and ate are carrots.

12: The Hopewell used bone, spearheads, and wooden poles for weapons. They killed many animals with these weapons. The Hopewell used many things for tools like stone and wooden knives. One of the things they used tools for was tearing animal pelts for clothes.

13: The Hopewell wore clothing made out of feathers, animal pelts, and jewelry. The Hopewell made pottery for trading, for holding stuff, or decoration. They needed tools and weapons so they traded their pottery for some tools and weapons with a trade system called the Hopewell Exchange System. The Hopewell's homes were not permanent because they moved a lot. We believe that their homes were made out of wooden pole frames covered with animal skins, grass or herb woven mats, or bark.

14: They lived around the Mississippi and Illinois rivers during the Middle Woodland Period and also in New York and Ohio. Archaeologists found many artifacts of the Hopewell Indians like pottery and skeletons..

15: Autumn's in the Air | Some people suggest that Effigy mounds were used as places of refuge, not of burial. Some archaeologists today believe that the mounds were built by the Hopewell Indians to honor their animal. Others believe that the mounds were burial sites for important figures, while still others believe that the mounds held some other religious stuff.

16: Geometric Mounds were made like shapes like circles, squares, and triangles. The Hopewell mound builders made mounds for burial, hiding things, and religious things.

17: Flat-topped pyramidal temple mounds are found in southern Mississippi, as well as Georgia, Oklahoma, Wisconsin, and probably beyond. Reaching 70-80 ft (21-24 m) in height, they were built in clusters, often around a central plaza. Many of them have log stairways or ramps leading up the sides to the temple, which was made of mud and earth..

21: May the bounty of the season fill your heart and home.

22: A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all the other virtues. ~Cicero

23: As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. ~John Fitzgerald Kennedy
