Feb break 2010

So I spent the break week at the art gallery. Taught one day and used an old lesson. I loved this lesson. At the gallery we have an authentic raven mask from a Inuit Potlatch. I like to bring in The story "The Raven" and read it to the kids. Then the kids made symmetrical paper cuttings based on a animal. We discussed button blankets and how their are used and worn for ceremonies, We also discussed Totem poles and how certain animals are associated with certain families.

We also went to the gallery and looked at the Raven mask and read the story "The Raven".
