Richmond Chapter 1: The Land and Its People

This book is bit shorter than the Miner book and there are a more chapters so these overviews will be a bit shorter by comparison. The first chapter of the book, as the title implies, goes through the geography of the state including how it differs in different parts and the original natives of the state dating back to the paleo-Indians that entered the central plain 11,000 years ago. The best method for this material in the classroom would be to look at how geography of a given area can influence the way people lives. Another idea would be to create a timeline showing the different aspects of native life in Kansas.
