Bring a flat, smooth rock to use for our rock painting project.


Topic: Native Americans

Understand and appreciate these diverse cultures

The value we’ll be studying is honor, which means we would never lie, cheat, or steal.

For ecology we’ll take a nature walk.

Outside, we’ll have a ceremonial parade.

The songs we’ll be singing are This Land Is Your Land, God Bless America, Catch a Falling Star, and Bluebird. We’ll also practice patterned singing, which is not only a great physical exercise, but also intellect and breath exercise.

For creative dramatics, we’ll learn about peace pipes.

Our art activities are tipi, rock painting pots, totems, spirit dolls, sand painting, and weaving.

For motor development, we’ll work on stamina with kick ball and ceremonial dancing. For postural response, we’ll play jack-in-the-box, tracking through the woods, balancing, and walking across a log.
