My D3 Speaking and Writing class is currently reading “The Indian in the Cupboard”. It was one of my favorite books as a kid and I’m excited to be able to share it with a new generation of kids. In the spirit of the chapter we’re currently reading, I decided to have the class make tepees.

Before actually making our tepees, I had the kids come up with four animals and what they represent. For example, an owl might represent knowledge. Those were the symbols they painted on their tepees. This whole project took us about 2.5 hours (6 of their 25 minute class periods).

All in all, I think they turned out really well.
