Kindergarten Art

We continued our study of Native American people in art and humanities this week. The students finished their thunder-bird designs and began learning the pictograph symbols used by the Native Americans. They cut out a ti-pee shape on brown craft paper and created a story using the pictographs on the side of their ti-pees. Paint will be applied and designs will be highlighted with paint and marker. The ti-pees are a tradition for our Thanksgiving celebration at the school and the 8th grade students enjoy remembering the construction of their ti-pees when they were in Kindergarten at Ratner. (I still use my sons ti-pees for display each year and they are in high school!)
