Native Americans

We have been working on our Native American unit for the last 2 weeks, and we have had so much fun. All of the ideas came from a Native American Mini Unit I bought on TPT. First, we made tipis from tortilla shells and horses using Crayola Model Magic.

The next day we painted masks.

I had my parents send in paper towel tubes that we used to make canoes.

Before we did each of the projects, the kiddos drew a picture of what they were about to make. The unit has step by step drawings for the students to go by.

I also wanted to show a picture of our caterpillars now. I posted a pic a few days ago and they have gotten so big.

They look pretty gross in their little cups with the food smeared everywhere but the kids are so excited and I am too to see what our butterflies turn out like.


  1. I love ALL of those activities! SO cute! Can I pin them?

  2. Go right ahead. Glad you like them!

  3. I pinned the toilet paper tube canoes. How CUTE! I have never seen those before and I would never have thought of making them that way!
