November is Native American Heritage month. So in 4th grade we discussed the Plains and Plateau Native Americans and how they would decorate the hides of animals to use as wall hangings, teepee covers, and blankets. I showed them symbols from the Native Americans and they created a story with these symbols. We distressed the paper to make it look old and worn. The students were very creative with the stories they created. When they bring these home you’ll be able to see the English “translation”, but without the translation you should try to see what the stories are telling us!
