In order to survive, the Plains Indians drew upon all of their skills and intelligence to hunt and make use of the buffalo. Once conquered, the buffalo provided hides that were used for clothing and moccasins. The pelts of the buffalo necks were used to make shields and bellies became cooking vessels. The bones were used as tools and the ribs became sleds. The bones and hair became toys and ornaments for headdresses and clothing. Life during the harsh winters became bearable for the Indians when they solved their problem with the help of the buffalo.

Wendell Waited
by John J. Bonk

Wendell just waited.
He constantly waited.
He waited for winter to melt into spring,
for grass to grow,
for birds to sing.
It sprang,
It grew,
They sang, they flew.
Then Wendell sat waiting for winter anew.

Wendell still waited.
Impatiently waited.
He ate from his plate, gaining weight as he waited.
He waited for someone to hand him a prize,
to scratch his back,
to bake his pies.
No prize,
No pies,
No big surprise.
But Wendell kept waiting with wonder and whys.

What would best solve Wendell's main problem?
  1. being more careful when winter comes
  2. learning to appreciate the present time
  3. having spring arrive sooner than expected
  4. receiving a prize from someone

Wendell Waited

by John J. Bonk

Wendell just waited.
He constantly waited.
Uncheerily, drearily, wearily waited.
He waited for winter to melt into spring,
for grass to grow,
for birds to sing.
It sprang,
It grew,
They sang, they flew.
Then Wendell sat waiting for winter anew.
Wendell still waited.
Impatiently waited.
He ate from his plate, gaining weight as he waited.
He waited for someone to hand him a prize,
to scratch his back,
to bake his pies.
No prize,
No pies,
No big surprise.
But Wendell kept waiting with wonder and whys.
