Daniel Boone

A few days ago I was learning about Daniel Boone in my school; so my awesome mom found a really fascinating lap-book here. The lap-book was very neat and I learned lots of information about Daniel Boone such as the following:

  • Daniel Boone did not wear a coonskin cap like the legend says instead he wore a felt hat. 
  • He was the sixth child out of eleven. 
  •  He helped an old Indian who was left to die by finding food for him.
  • His indian name was Sheltowee, which means "big turtle."
  • Daniel Boone was adopted into a tribe as a son of Chief Blackfish. 
  • Daniel Boone and his wife had ten children. 
  • He died at the age of eighty-five, seven years after his wife died.
  • His parents were Quakers until their children married non- Quakers and were treated unkindly by the other Quakers.

A helpful site I used to learn about Daniel Boone is here.
