Native American Pictographs

Second grade students used beans to create mosaics inspired by Native American Pictographs.  

Totem Poles

The Kindergarten team hosted a "Feast" before the student's left for Thanksgiving break last year.  For decorations, the Kindergarten teachers asked me to make totem poles with the students.  We used recycled jugs and cardboard to create the totem poles.  Each class made their own totem pole.  I pulled students in small groups to paint the jugs and cardboard.  While students were waiting for their turn to paint, they did crayon drawings of totem poles.  Check out our art below!
