As part of our American Indian studies, students made dream catchers and sand painting teepees.
Today we made bracelets in the style of the Eastern Woodland's wampum belts. We also made a virtual wampum belt online. We first planned out three designs on graph paper and then used pipe cleaners and pony beads to replicate our favorite design.
As enrichment to our American Indian unit, students gave a try at spear throwing during morning meeting and lacrosse, archery, and hoop rolling during PE.
We have been learning about geometry, including 3-D shapes. Today we made 3-D shapes from nets during math. This included cylinders, rectangular prisms, triangular prisms, cubes, and pyramids. During STEM time we took our 3-D shapes and turned them into sculptures, creatures, and buildings. Check them out! How creative!
