  27. 27. My name is Walking-Dog. I lived a long time ago. I am an Osage boy. The sun is coming up. I am getting ready for a busy day. Today my brothers and I will help our father. We will go hunting near our home. We hunt for deer and rabbits. We will eat some sweet, wild berries when we hunt. My sisters will help our mother. She is cooking buffalo meat and wild potatoes in a stew. It will cook all day long. When we come home from hunting, we eat the buffalo stew. Then we will sit around the fire and talk. My grandfather tells us stories. He tells us about our history. I like to hear my grandfather tell stories. I learn many things from my grandfather. The sun has gone down. It is dark in our lodge. It is time to go to sleep. Tomorrow will be another busy day.
  28. 28. My name is Sarah. I lived a long time ago. I am a pioneer girl. The sun is coming up. I am getting ready for a busy day. Today my sisters and brothers and I will go to school. I help my mother make a lunch for me to take to school. I will take a piece of fried chicken for lunch. I will take an apple, too. My brothers help our father. They milk the cows. My sisters and I feed the chickens. We walk a mile to go to school. Our teacher helps us to read. We learn many things from our teacher at school. At the end of the day we walk home again. After dinner Papa reads the Bible to us. I learn many things when Papa reads to us. The sun has gone down. It is dark in our cabin. It is time to go to sleep. Tomorrow will be another busy day.
  29. 29. How is your day the same and different as Walking Dog and Sarah? Do how we live change depending on when and where they live?
