Lenape Diary - To write after our trip to Waterloo Village

Imagine you are a Lenape child. Write about 1 day in your life, from waking up to going to sleep. Include details from what you learned on our field trip to Waterloo Village. If you didn’t attend the field trip, find out what you missed from a friend, and do some research so that you are able to complete this assignment. You may use lined paper or get more creative and make your own diary!
