Phoenix Metis Presentation


Published on

A presentation on the Metis people of Canada.
My 9 year old daughter made this up on her own on her ipad with absolutely no assistance from Mom or Dad. I'm so proud of her. I had no idea she had this skill. I guess hours on Minecraft is teaching her something. :-)
