I have nothing much to report to you today other than to share the newest round of Native American projects that came in! I showed you last year's projects, but I wanted to share this year's as well. Some of the kids did SUCH a fantastic job, that I just wanted to show them off to you. :) Remember, all of these projects researching pre-Columbian native tribes were done at home, with very little in class time devoted to them. I am just so proud of the work that these kids did. Some had a great deal of help from their parents (which is OK!) but most did not...and they still produced amazingly fabulous things. And what's even better is that the KIDS were so proud of themselves. The smiles and eagerness to share their knowledge with the touring classes was tremendous and overwhelming for me as a teacher.
Beware, this is VERY pic heavy. Enjoy your "museum tour".
|This one was great! The student put so much time and effort into each portion of the project, paying attention to each detail. You can see the individual piece below.|
|On the house you can see little label. They showed exactly what each piece included in the diorama was. Very detailed and accurate to the tribe that was being researched.|
|This student knew SO much about the tribe that was being researched. Even curveball question were no problem! He really knew his stuff!|
|There was SO much research done on this one. The writing was excellent and when I spoke to the student, the traditions and history of the tribe just seemed to ooze out of her.|
|This house was amazing. It was made of real mud, to mimic what the tribe made. The picture on the board shows an actual house, and this one that was made really resembled it well.|
|This house was made of real wood!|
|This entire project was very detailed and thoroughly researched. The student took a great deal of time on this project, even going as far to dress up in traditional clothing that the tribe might have worn.|
And, as always, if you would like to grab this Native American Project (which has all of the pieces set up for you to run off and give the kids....with little explanation on your part), you can get it here in my TpT store. If you are researching specific tribes (ie: CA Tribes instead of the entire US, or Canadian tribes, or whatever) just drop me a note and I will customize it for you.
