Native American Theme Unit Review

We made edible Sioux tepees,made an Ojibway dreamcatcher,explored a replica of a Cahuilla Native American house,and found a real historical grinding stone used by Serrano Native Americans.

It was a great theme for starting projects. Not so great for finishing them. Our clay was a bit too wet to form anything that didn't flop over, our recycled box totem pole just never quite got finished, and our paper bag "buffalo skin" is without any markings or symbols.

But we did learn a few things.

Especially not to plan too many crafts in one unit!
