In Social Studies we have been learning about Early Portland.  Some great questions to ask your third grader:
  • How did Portland get it's name?  
  • What is a clearing?  
  • What was the local Indian tribe that helped the first settlers? (Hint: County we live in)  
  • What did the Settlers, Explorers and Native Americans use as highways (because there weren't any roads yet)?  
  • What was Portland's nickname?  (Hint:  Really great local coffee company)
  • What did settlers paint white?
  • What is an immigrant?
GENIUS QUESTION: What main Portland road used to be known as "The Plank Road"?
